Romeo Lavia prefers to move to Arteta’s Arsenal to a potential switch to Liverpool or Chelsea

According to reports, Romeo Lavia has shown a preference for joining Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal over potentially moving to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool or Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea.

Today, Football Transfers has stated that Arsenal, Liverpool, and Chelsea are all interested in acquiring Romeo Lavia from Southampton during the upcoming summer transfer window.

Southampton, who have been relegated from the Premier League and will play in the Championship next season, are open to selling Lavia.

However, the Saints have set a high asking price of £50 million for the Belgian defensive midfielder.

While Arsenal is not willing to meet this £50 million valuation and would need to secure the signing of Declan Rice from West Ham United while also offloading Thomas Partey, Lavia reportedly favors a move to the North London club, as per Football Transfers.

“The offering of Champions League football, the presence of Mikel Arteta and the ‘Arsenal project’, and the image of a well-run club have given the Gunners the advantage over their rivals in the eyes of Lavia,” according to the report, which has added that Arsenal are also able to pay more wages than the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

Could Liverpool or Chelsea beat Arsenal to Romeo Lavia signing?

We believe that Romeo Lavia’s preference for Arsenal doesn’t necessarily guarantee that Liverpool or Chelsea won’t be able to sign him as a defensive midfielder from Southampton during the upcoming summer transfer window.

If either Liverpool or Chelsea meets Southampton’s £50 million asking price for the 19-year-old, while Arsenal fails to do so, it could potentially influence Lavia’s decision.

This scenario would demonstrate the level of interest and determination that the Reds or the Blues have in acquiring Lavia’s services. Although Arsenal is a prominent club on the rise, Liverpool and Chelsea also possess worldwide recognition and brand value.

Furthermore, Mauricio Pochettino, the newly appointed head coach of Chelsea, has a track record of developing young players during his time at Tottenham Hotspur.

Additionally, Jurgen Klopp, a world-class manager who has recently achieved success in winning both the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League with Liverpool, further adds to the allure of these clubs.

In the end, we believe that Lavia’s final decision could depend on the club that offers him the most lucrative financial package and the environment where he can continue to progress as a footballer.
