Liverpool transfer news roundup: Verratti price tag, Lavia 'green light' & Fabinho hold-up

It's Tuesday and here are your Liverpool transfer rumours summed up and broken down...

At least FIVE clubs have contacted PSG about Kylian Mbappe according to Sky Sports. Could Liverpool be one of them? Maybe. But here's why a deal isn't on the cards (sorry).

Saudi Arabian side Al-Hilal have made a €300m bid for the France captain (as you do), and the BBC say PSG have given Mbappe permission to speak to the club.

Another PSG player Liverpool probably won't get (let's be honest) is Marco Verratti. Marca say the Paris club want £60m for the 30-year-old who is of interest to Atletico Madrid and the Reds.

Football Insider say Southampton's Romeo Lavia is still top of the Reds' agenda and there is hope a deal can be done before the end of July. Tick tock...

Florian Plettenberg says Lavia has given Liverpool the 'green light', while Sacha Tavolieri says the Reds will open the bidding at £35m for the 19-year-old.

Meanwhile, El Nacional say Liverpool are 'obsessed' with Fede Valverde of Real Madrid and could offer around £70m for the midfielder following the exits of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho.

Speaking of Fabinho, hid dogs are NOT stopping him from moving to Saudi Arabia, despite some strange reports. GE reached out to his entourage who say it's bureaucracy holding up the deal not bulldogs...

Fabrizio Romano agrees both clubs want the move finished in the coming days, adding that Al-Ittihad's president is in London to get the deal over the line.

Jordan Henderson has said his goodbyes to the Liverpool squad as he prepares to travel to join up with Al-Ettifaq on Tuesday, say the Mail.

The same reporter says Celta Vigo's Gabri Veiga is not a priority for Liverpool, with the Reds looking at different profiles.

Sport claim that Thiago is considering his future despite turning down a Saudi offer. He is 'hoping' for an offer from the likes of Real Sociedad, Celta Vigo or Sevilla.

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino was defiant about the future of Liverpool-coveted Levi Colwill saying, "We don't need to make a statement about anything. He's our player and he's going to continue with us."
