According to Belgian media, one of Liverpool’s summer transfer targets is waiting to hear from Anfield about a possible move to Merseyside.

According to La Derniere Heure, Romeo Lavia is awaiting notification from his agent of an offer from the Reds, who are expected to make a move for the Southampton midfielder this week.

The 19-year-old is said to be eager to join Jurgen Klopp’s squad as a replacement for Fabinho, who is expected to complete his proposed move to Al-Ittihad in the coming days.

However, Liverpool are not yet willing to meet the Saints’ £50m asking price for Lavia, as the Championship club wants to get the most out of their asset.

Since it was revealed earlier this month that Fabinho and Jordan Henderson had received offers from the Saudi Pro League, there has been a renewed desire to pursue midfield transfer targets so that Klopp is not left short in that area of the squad.

The various rumoured ins and outs have been heavily reported on over the last week and a half, but we may see a flurry of activity in the coming days as the first domino falls to start a chain reaction.

The Lavia links have been rumbling since before the end of last season, but the double curveball over the current Liverpool midfielders appears to have accelerated the Reds’ desire to bring the Southampton gem to Anfield so that they are not short ahead of the new season.

This particular rumour has been simmering for some time, but it appears to be about to boil over in the coming days.

There could be an offer from LFC; the question is whether the Saints will accept it. Once the two clubs agree on a price, that will likely be the most difficult hurdle to overcome in order for the Belgian to become our third summer signing.
