Liverpool 'agrees personal terms' with Roméo Lavia
Liverpool has ‘agreed personal terms’ with Roméo Lavia, and is reportedly hopeful of getting a cut-price deal over the line with Southampton.
But Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri has now suggested that Lavia has agreed personal terms with Liverpool, with the Reds set to launch their first bid soon.
Jürgen Klopp’s side is said to be aiming to offer around $45m (£35m/€41m), although no formal approach has been made yet. Lavia is keen on the move.
Fábio Carvalho drops hint over Liverpool future
Liverpool starlet Fábio Carvalho has placed doubt over his future at Anfield after hinting he could stay at RB Leipzig beyond his current loan deal.
The former Fulham star joined the Bundesliga side on a temporary deal earlier this summer, and is set to spend the season out in Germany as he looks to gain more playing time following a disappointing first campaign with the Reds.

The 20-year-old has now given an interview to Transfermarkt, in which he gave the reason why he felt he struggled in his first season with the Reds.
"I feel like why it didn’t work out at Liverpool was because of the position I was playing," Carvalho said. "I was playing on the left, which isn’t really my position. I was told that I would play as a number 10, but we didn’t really play with a number 10 last year.
"When we play with a number 10, then I can get on my prominent side, and I am able to turn."
Carvalho also suggested he will have a decision to make on his future when his loan in Germany comes to an end, and the player hasn’t ruled out staying with Leipzig.
"That [not being able to play his preferred role] is why I would say it didn’t work out," he said. "Whether I will be here or at Liverpool next year, we will have to see how it works out."
