Transfer Gossip: Chelsea bid £48m for Liverpool target as Man Utd add England man to their target list

Chelsea have put some fat money on the table for Liverpool target Romeo Lavia while Manchester United have a four-man Maguire replacement list.

Well, well. It seems that Chelsea have entered (or should we say re-entered, as they made a bid to sign him last year) the race for Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia after failing to make a breakthr0ugh in their pursuit of Brighton’s Moises Caicedo. They have made a £48m bid for the Belgian, which is as near as damn it to the £50m the Saints want.

Now it is over to Liverpool, who must decide whether to raise the £45m bid they made on Monday for Lavia as they attempt to complete their midfield rebuild after the exits of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho to Saudi Arabia.

Fabrizio Romano named three players who could replace Harry Maguire at Manchester United yesterday – Bayern Munich’s Benjamin Pavard, Nice’s Jean Clair Todibo and Bayer Leverkusen’s Edmond Tapsoba – but the Mail have added another: Crystal Palace defender Marc Guehi.

But the Mail believe that Guehi – and Tapsoba – could prove too expensive for Manchester United, so it seems likelier that they will settle on Pavard, who offers the added bonus that he can also play at right-back. The signing of Kim Min-jae by Bayern could limit his minutes next season. Thomas Tuchel wants to keep him but Pavard wants to leave (according to Sky Germany).

Hugo Ekitike has only permanently become a PSG player this summer but he could already be on the move after a season in which he started just 12 Ligue Un games and scored only three goals.

In negotiations to bring him to the Premier League are Everton, who desperately need a striker that is not Dominic Calvert-Lewin or Neal Maupay, and they want to bring him in on loan. But PSG want around £30m, which would give them a profit, which could be way out of the price range of Everton, who have not spent a penny this summer.
