Roméo Lavia

Under the Blues pursuit for a new midfielder to partner Enzo Fernández. They keep pushing hard for Moisés Caicedo of Brighton Albion this summer.

It’s confirmed that the Ecuadorian youngster wants to join the West London club. However, there’s no agreement between the two sides.

Chelsea have already submitted four different bids to Brighton Albion for Moisés Caicedo. Meanwhile, the Seagulls aren’t bugging, they want an amount around £100 million.

On Thursday, the Blues reportedly submitted a bid of £80 million (€93 million). However, it was immediately rejected by the Premier League side.

Nevertheless, Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali continue to negotiate with the Seagulls. Because they really want the Ecuadorian youngster.

Of course, the West London club are still focused on selling players. At least, they have offloaded many brilliant and talented players this summer transfer window.

After selling Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, and N’Golo Kante. The Blues are hell-bent on signing a new midfielder, wanting to balance their midfield.

As a result, they believe Moisés Caicedo has enough qualities to equip the midfield. And they want the perfect partner for Enzo Fernández.

In the midst of their negotiation with Brighton Albion for the Ecuadorian youngster. The West London club have set their gaze on a new midfielder.

Chelsea are reportedly ready to move for Roméo Lavia of Southampton. And they are determined to table a higher offer than Liverpool.

The West London club tabled an offer of £50 million for the Belgian youngster last year. However, it was rejected by Southampton.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are ready to battle with Liverpool to get the player’s signature. Of course, that’s if they miss out on bringing Moisés Caicedo to Stamford Bridge.

Southampton reportedly wants a fee of around £50 million for the 19-year-old Belgian. On the contrary, the Reds current offer for the player is £35 million.

As a result, Jurgen Klopp’s side aren’t close to what the Saints are asking for. And Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali may hijack the deal.

Roméo Lavia still wants to move to Liverpool. However, there’s no way he would turn down the Blues offer, as they are one of the best clubs in the Premier League.

Of course, Moisés Caicedo is hell bent on joining the West London club. And the Blues are ready to keep pushing until the last day.

On the other hand, Chelsea have set their gaze on Roméo Lavia. By all means, they want to sign an ideal partner for Enzo Fernández.

Roméo Lavia

What you don’t know? 

Jurgen Klopp wants to sign the 19-year-old Belgian for a different reason. He wants to play him as a pivot with Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The German manager desires to play the Englishman as a defensive midfielder. With Roméo as his pivot, moving back and forth in the midfield.

As a result, the Belgian international fits into Liverpool style more than Chelsea. Despite his defensive prowess, he’s not an ideal partner for Enzo Fernández.

Moisés Caicedo is everything the West London club needs in the midfield. Of course, they would want to replace N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic.

Roméo Lavia is poor defensively, he’s more like the 23-year-old Argentine. Therefore, there’s no way his presence beside Enzo will equip the Blues midfield.

It’s reported that Chelsea internally appreciates the 19-year-old Belgian. Nevertheless, he doesn’t look like the ideal weapon to boost the squad from midfield.

Regardless, in case the Blues fail to sign Moisés Caicedo. They are ready to bid for Roméo Lavia, wanting to counter the Reds offer for the player.
