Happy Monday Reds! We are back with another edition of the transfer roundup where we gather as much reliable info as we can and put it together so you don’t have to spend hours sifting through social media. Romeo Lavia, Gabri Veiga and more.
Here we go!
ROMEO LAVIA (SOUTHAMPTON) – Liverpool having a strong interest in the young Belgian is nothing new as they had a bid rejected last week. Southampton are holding out for an offer closer to their ¨£50 million valuation. The Reds have prepared a £45 million 2nd offer in the hopes the Saints will relent just a little.
GABRI VEIGA (CELTA VIGO) – Former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is currently in charge at Celta, which lends even more hope of something coming to fruition here. The clubs recently spoke about what it would take to get the Spaniard to Anfield.
Reports say the first proposal would see Veiga stay at Celt Vigo on loan for this year. This would be similar to what they worked out with RB Leipzig over Naby Keita.
KEPHREN THURAM (NICE) – Things have gone quite cold on the Thuram front in recent weeks. There was a time when he was viewed as the No. 1 target after Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai were secured.
Recent comments from OGC Nice’s Sporting Director saying; “If all parties are satisfied, a departure could happen.” At this stage, we are having a hard time believing this will get done.
THIAGO (LIVERPOOL) – This one is not particularly surprising, but the Spaniard is expected to stay at Anfield for the final year of his contract. He rejected the overtures from Saudi Arabia in early the stages of summer.
Entering his final year, many thought he could be flipped. However, it appears to be Liverpool’s new policy to run these contracts out.
JOSKO GVARDIOL (RB LEIPZIG0 – This one is borderline of the impossible but here we are. It was thought that Manchester City had secured his signing, but the financials were never agreed. It was reported Liverpool had swooped in with an audacious £85 million bid for the star defender.
It doesn’t appear this deal will be happening anytime soon. The Reds have shown this summer they will not break the bank on one player. Things would have to drastically change for this to get off the ground.
That’s it for this today on transfer rumors. Hopefully, this time next week the club will have Lavia in the door and could be close to securing another. Seven days is a long time in the transfer market, so anything can happen.
Come back next week to see where things stand for the club on the market.
