Carragher criticises Liverpool pursuit of Lavia

Jamie Carragher has criticised Liverpool for their pursuit of Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia and has called on the club to get a deal done.

Liverpool have seen a third bid for Lavia rejected by Southampton, who are insistent that the 19-year-old will not be allowed to leave for less than his £50m asking price.


Liverpool’s latest offer was worth in the region of £45m including add-ons and Carragher has criticised the Reds’ recruitment team for failing to act quickly to agree a deal.

“This is embarrassing,” Carragher wrote on Twitter.

“Liverpool for years now have got deals done quickly with no fuss. If you don’t think he’s worth 50M move on, if you really want him pay it.

“Also not sure why LFC aren’t in for (Moises) Caicedo, yes it’s a lot of money but Liverpool got big money for JH/FAB (Jordan Henderson and Fabinho).”

Liverpool remain without a recognised defensive midfielder ahead of the Premier League’s opening weekend, having overseen a host of midfield departures this summer.

James Milner, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all moved on as free agents, while Fabinho and Jordan Henderson have completed transfers to the Saudi Pro League.
