Chelsea are close to signing Roméo Lavia from Southampton in a deal worth £50m. The 19-year-old Belgian midfielder has decided to join the Blues as his next club, and the two clubs are now in advanced talks to finalize the transfer.
Lavia is a highly rated young midfielder who has been making waves in the Premier League since joining Southampton from Manchester City in 2021. He is known for his technical ability, passing range, and defensive work rate.
Chelsea are looking to strengthen their midfield options this summer, and Lavia is seen as a key signing. He will provide competition for the likes of Jorginho, N’Golo Kanté, and Mateo Kovacic.
The transfer is expected to be completed by Tuesday
