Former Liverpool defender Jose Enrique wants the Merseyside club to go all out for reported Chelsea target Romeo Lavia.
The Southampton defensive midfielder is one of the hottest prospects in English football currently. Lavia joined Saints from Manchester City last summer and made 34 appearances across competitions.
Liverpool are looking to strengthen their midfield after multiple departures. Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and James Milner have left the club this summer.
Despite signing Dominik Szoboszlai and Alexis Mac Allister, there is still room for improvement in the club’s squad.
Enrique wrote on his Instagram story, urging his former club to wrap up Lavia (via HITC):
“Agreed, if we want the player (Lavia) we should go all the way and get (him). Stop playing around.”
Apart from the Reds, Chelsea are also interested in Lavia as Mauricio Pochettino is eager to adding a defensive midfielder in the summer (via Sky Sports).
Moises Caicedo is the Stamford Bridge club’s first choice, the Blues couldn’t agree on fees with Brighton & Hove Albion, with their £80 million bid being rejected. BBC have now reported that Caicedo might remain at the Seagulls this summer.
