Liverpool agree £60m Lavia deal but Chelsea still in pursuit

Liverpool have agreed a deal with Southampton for Romeo Lavia, Sky Sports News understands.

However, Chelsea are still pushing to sign Lavia and had been close to an agreement with Saints late last week.

Sources have told Sky Sports News that the total package agreed between Liverpool and Southampton on Sunday night is worth £60m.

Liverpool have already missed out on Moises Caicedo to Chelsea. The Blues have agreed a deal with Brighton worth a British record £115m for Caicedo. That follows Liverpool having a £111m offer accepted only for the 21-year-old to inform them he intended to join Chelsea.

Southampton had been holding firm on their £50m valuation of 19-year-old Lavia. Chelsea had made an offer of £48m last week, while Liverpool had seen three previous offers turned down this summer.
