Chelsea Nearing Agreement on Romeo Lavia Transfer

Chelsea Nearing Agreement on Romeo Lavia Transfer

Chelsea are allegedly close to completing a deal for Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia.

Following the exits of Mason Mount, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Mateo Kovacic, the Blues are looking to bolster their midfield.

Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur are presently seeking a deal for Lavia, who has also been linked with a move to Liverpool.

The Reds have already had three bids for the former Manchester City starlet rejected, including their most recent £45 million bid.

Liverpool’s failure to reach an agreement gave Chelsea the opportunity to outbid their Premier League opponents with a £48 million bid.

According to Sky Sports News, Chelsea and Southampton are nearing an agreement for the Belgium international.

The two teams are continuing in talks, with the Saints understood to be sticking to their £50 million asking price.

Lavia, who joined Southampton last summer, was one of the brightest players in the South Coast club’s poor 2022-23 season.

The defensive midfielder made 35 competitive games, scoring one goal and assisting one, but he was unable to keep the Saints from dropping to the Championship.

Chelsea are interested in signing two midfielders and are competing with Liverpool for the services of Brighton & Hove Albion’s Moises Caicedo.

For the duration of the summer transfer season, the Blues had been unwilling to pay Brighton’s £100 million asking price, and their chances of completing a deal were dashed on Friday morning when it was revealed that Liverpool had agreed to a £110 million transfer.

Chelsea, on the other hand, are said to have outbid Liverpool and are already in talks with the Seagulls about a £115 million deal.

Caicedo appears to have stated his preference to join Chelsea, prompting Liverpool to consider walking away from a potential trade.

Chelsea and Liverpool will square off on the pitch at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, as the two sides continue to compete in the transfer market.
