(Video) Sky Sports presenter shares what a ‘source’ has now told them about Romeo Lavia’s next move

Posted by

Romeo Lavia appears to be taking a leaf out of Moises Caicedo’s book, as we’ve seen a fee agreed with Liverpool for his services but the midfielder’s head seems to have been turned by Chelsea.

Speaking on Sky Sports News, Rob Wotton reported: “One source has told Sky Sports News that Chelsea are pushing to sign Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia. An agreement between the clubs understood to be close. Personal terms not expected to be a problem.

“As we reported at the weekend this is independent of the deal for Moises Caicedo. Liverpool remain interested, held talks with Southampton over the weekend and again, personal terms with Liverpool not expected to be an issue. This will come down to an agreement between clubs, and the player’s choice.”

It seems like we have more chance in this deal than we did with trying to convince the Ecuadorian but it’s still not a great position to see that we’re again having to compete for the signature of the Belgian.

Time will tell where the teenager ends up but we’ve probably all learned now that you don’t get your hopes up until we see a new player signing on the dotted line.

  1. It’s all,well and good Chelsea throwing money about..
    Wait until Todd is left with a couple of duds and paying off contracts… it will happen…

    1. I agree James, they have bought 16 players, on long 8 year contracts on massive wages. They could/will have massive problems, as they all wont work out. Who will buy those that don’t, massive transfer fee and wages to match and on long contracts.

  2. The Saudi proleague is Chelsea’s get out of jail card. No European club will buy any duds that Chelsea produce as the fees and wages will be too high. However weve already seen that the Saudis will pay obscene amounts for any player from a European giant. Chelsea will be set for a windfall as I can see at least 5 or 6 of their players endi g up there. Kepa for one is sn almost definite after his loan is up at Madrid. If they still own Lukaku then he is another one.

    1. This is. omplete corruption The PIF (Saudi Royal Family Fund) are Clearlakes largest investor and Clearlake Capital is Todd Boehly … He is singming 8 year contracts as he knows he can offload to the Saundi League when they fail ! The PIF and their state owmed banks are also.more likely helping Abromovich to launder his funds and indirectly own Chelsea still ! Nest of Vipers
