Arsenal and Liverpool have ‘already been in contact’ with £47m star as summer sale planned | Football | Sport


Arsenal have already acquired the services of Kai Havertz to provide cover for club captain Martin Odegaard and a holding midfielder is a priority instead, with the need for reinforcements in that department set to be accelerated if Thomas Partey leaves.

Liverpool are also well-stocked with creative midfielders after signing Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai already this summer. The sales of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho to Saudi Arabia has prompted the Reds to continue rebuilding their midfield and Southampton’s Romeo Lavia has been identified as a top target, with a second offer for the Belgium international expected to be lodged imminently.

Jurgen Klopp’s side should not be ruled out of adding two midfielders to their ranks over the coming weeks though, having allowed Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner to leave at the end of last season.
