Liverpool transfer news roundup: Lavia rival offer, Fabinho returns to training, Andre update

Wednesday's here and it's time to wrap your retinas around some Liverpool transfer news...

Liverpool have finally made their opening bid (£37m) for Southampton's Romeo Lavia... and it's already been rejected according to The Athletic's David Ornstein.

Sacha Tavolieri adds the Reds want to close a deal around £40m, whereas Southampton... don't.

Adding pressure to the situation, The Daily Mail say Southampton are 'braced' for a rival offer from Chelsea for Lavia.

Meanwhile, the man Lavia is supposed to replace might not be leaving at all! Fabinho is set to return to Liverpool pre-season training, with his move to Al-Ittihad suddenly in 'jeopardy', according to Ornstein. Who saw that coming?

Meanwhile, David Lynch claims that despite the Fabinho faff, Al-Ettifaq are confident of announcing the signing of Jordan Henderson this week.

Liverpool's most successful skipper of the Premier League era was spotted filming a goodbye video at Anfield on Tuesday.

Fluminense's Andre won't be available for transfer until the end of the Brazilian league season in December, dashing any Liverpool hopes of a deal right now, say Football Transfers.

Liverpool-linked pair Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka are both keen to stay at Bayern Munich this summer. You can read more on what they both said here.

Corriere della Sera claim that another supposed Reds target, Sofyan Amrabat, has an agreement in place to join Manchester United. Fiorentina want €30m for him.

Staying in Italy, the agent of 18-year-old Lecce defender Patrick Dorgu has told Sky Italia that it's "very likely" Liverpool will make an offer for his client.

And finally, El Nacional (don't get your hopes up) claim that PSG's Marco Verratti has "given the OK to Liverpool" and Jurgen Klopp is keen to add another ageing, expensive, injury-prone midfielder to his ranks... apparently.
