Southampton Rejects Liverpool’s Initial Offer for Romeo Lavia

Southampton Football Club has turned down the first offer presented by Liverpool to acquire Belgian international player Romeo Lavia during the current summer transfer window.

Liverpool made an offer worth £35 million Sterling, in addition to £2 million in add-ons, as their initial bid to secure the services of the 19-year-old Belgian midfielder during the ongoing summer transfer period.

According to the British newspaper “Daily Mail,” Chelsea is also vying for the player’s signature to strengthen their midfield ahead of the new season.

The report indicates that Southampton is seeking £50 million Sterling for Lavia, who moved from Manchester City to Southampton last summer.

Liverpool hopes to secure the services of the Belgian midfielder to compensate for the potential departure of Jordan Henderson to Al Ittihad Saudi Club in the coming days.

Meanwhile, Chelsea has witnessed the departures of N’Golo Kanté, Mateo Kovačić, Mason Mount, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Denis Zakaria.

In a related context, Liverpool has agreed to an offer from Al Ittihad Saudi Club to sign English player Jordan Henderson for £12 million Sterling during the current summer transfer window.

According to the “Daily Mail,” Henderson will leave Liverpool’s training camp currently held in Germany to join Al Ittihad Saudi Club after reaching an agreement on all the transfer details between the two clubs.

The report emphasized that Henderson agreed about a week ago to receive a weekly salary of £700,000 Sterling to play for Al Ittihad Saudi Club, which is five times his current wage at Liverpool.

As a result of the agreement between the clubs, Liverpool’s manager, Jürgen Klopp, decided to place the midfielder on the substitutes’ bench. This decision was made after the negotiations returned to the table, and Liverpool accepted the offered value by the Saudi club.
