Liverpool transfer news roundup: Andre valuation, Lavia preference, Thiago decision

Happy weekend! What better way to celebrate than with some Liverpool transfer gossip?

'Where's Romeo Lavia??' I hear you cry. Well, according to Belgian transfer reporter Sacha Tavolieri he's still leaning towards Liverpool despite Chelsea interest. However, the added competition could help Southampton get the full £50m in their negotiations.

Rudy Galetti claims that Liverpool's latest bid is still £7-8m short of the Saints' valuation.

While the Reds fear a gazumping from Chelsea, they could do the same to Sporting CP. Record claim the Portuguese side are worried Liverpool's interest in Brazilian Andre Trindade (pictured above looking angry) will price them out of a move. It's said that Fluminense want offer over €20m for the midfielder.

Brazilian journalist Bruno Andrade says 'super-agent' Jorge Mendes is pushing to get the highly rated 22-year-old over to England.

Staying in Brazil, Gremio's Luis Suarez will NOT be linking up with Lionel Messi at Inter Miami. The feisty Uruguayan's current club are determined that he honours his contract, say ESPN.

In other legendary Liverpool forward news, Sadio Mane seems set to link up with Cristiano Ronaldo at Al-Nassr. Fabrizio Romano reports that a deal is in place between Bayern and the Saudi Pro League side, with a medical to follow.

Back to current Liverpool players now. David Ornstein says that Thiago is going nowhere and will see out the final year of his Liverpool contract, despite interest from abroad.

Elsewhere, Aurelian Tchouameni could be Liverpool's for as little as €80m, say El Nacional (slow news day, sorry). The unreliable gossip-mongers claim that Real Madrid do consider the Frenchman sellable but want to recover close to what they paid last summer. File firmly under: not happening.

And finally, Fabinho has been spotted in the Middle East for his medical ahead of his long-awaited £40m move to Al-Ittihad. Fabrizio Romano has done his little catchphrase and says a 'document check' by Liverpool is the last stage of the very drawn-out process.
