Southampton Eco Press Report Alfie House.

A problem with the negotiations (with Liverpool) is the high agent fee in addition to the transfer fee. Chelsea did not abandon Moises Caicedo, and the offer to Lafia is not a sign of defeat.
The big question is how Liverpool, Jürg Schmadtke and Jürgen Klopp will react to this news. Another question is what Romeo preferred to Lavia. The Belgian has been clear that Anfield is the desired destination, but the question is whether that view has changed in recent weeks.
News about Lavia’s transmission is expected to be updated continuously from Thursday morning.
