Liverpool Transfer News – Liverpool scouts seen at Nice-Rennes match to watch Jean-Clair Todibo

According to Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool scouts were in attendance in a fixture between Stade Rennes and OGC Nice on May 6th. The player being scouted was reportedly Nice’s Jean-Clair Todibo. OGC Nice won the match 2-1 with Todibo picking up a 7.2 FotMob rating. Manchester United and Newcastle scouts were also watching the French centre-back. Todibo is a former Barcelona player, having been at the club between 2019 and 2021. He’s yet to make his senior debut for France but was called up in March for Euro qualifiers. Romano states Todibo’s price tag is a little under £40M.

Liverpool Transfer News – Romeo Lavia’s agent has held talks with Liverpool management

Per Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri via LFC Transfer Room, Liverpool has been in contact with the agent of Southampton’s Romeo Lavia. His agency is Elite Project Group Ltd. which also represents Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka and Manchester United’s Jadon Sancho. Lavia has enjoyed a breakout season at Southampton having joined the club from Manchester City the previous summer. Manchester City owns a buy-back clause for Lavia but it cannot be activated until 2024. They also hold a sell-on percentage for the 2004-born midfielder.

Liverpool Transfer News – Bruno Guimaraes is on Liverpool’s shortlist for future targets

According to AS, Liverpool has shortlisted Bruno Guimaraes as a midfield target along with Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona. AS further reports that Liverpool would be willing to spend up to £87M for Guimaraes. Despite interest in the Brazilian midfielder, Newcastle is expected to offer Guimaraes a lucrative contract to extend his stay. His current contract still runs until 2026 making it difficult to see a path for Guimaraes to join Liverpool in the near future.
