Liverpool 'preparing to bid' for Romeo Lavia with FSG set to continue summer splurge

Liverpool are preparing a transfer bid for Southampton star Romeo Lavia as the club looks to continue its summer rebuild, according to a new report.

The Reds have already sealed the signings of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai as manager Jurgen Klopp reshapes his midfield following several departures.

Mac Allister, who arrived from Brighton upon the opening of the transfer window in June, gained vast Premier League experience with the Seagulls and won the World Cup with Argentina last year.

Szoboszlai does not have those same experiences, but was involved in 14 goal contributions in each of his last two Bundesliga seasons with RB Leipzig, and is the captain of the Hungary national team.

In line with many other Liverpool signings of the recent past, both players are under the age of 25. Mac Allister is 24 years of age, while Szoboszlai is 22.

And the Reds appear to be planning to continue on that path with a bid for another young talent, a new report claims.

According to talkSPORT, Liverpool are preparing an opening proposal to sign former Manchester City midfielder Lavia from Southampton.

The Belgian had not played a Premier League game prior to joining the Saints last summer, but showed maturity beyond his years to quickly develop into one of the side's key players.

Although the Saints suffered relegation from the top flight of English football, the 19-year-old was one of the few highlights of an otherwise disappointing campaign, and has already attracted interest from the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United.

Southampton reportedly want £50 million to sell Lavia, although it is unclear whether Liverpool plan to match that valuation with their opening bid.

If they do, 20 per cent of the fee would go to City due to a sell-on fee they inserted in the deal to sell the midfielder to the St Mary's Stadium last summer.

But the Reds are keen to offer Lavia a route away from playing Championship football next season - and make him part of the club's midfield revolution this summer.
