Fabrizio Romano responds to Arsenal links with potential £40million transfer

March 6, 2023

The highly-rated Belgian starlet has shone in the Premier League this season, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him move to a bigger club in the summer, especially if Southampton end up getting relegated.

Lavia could be a good fit in midfield for Arsenal, where Mikel Arteta could do with some young talent coming in to replace ageing stars like Granit Xhaka, Thomas Partey and Jorginho.

Still, writing in his exclusive CaughtOffside column, Romano played down the links with Arsenal, which originally came from the Mail, and made it clear Man City have the option to re-sign the 19-year-old for £40million, which gives an idea of how much he’d cost.
