Official: Chelsea FC Romeo Lavia

Chelsea has officially confirmed the transfer of midfielder Romeo Lavia from Southampton.

The Blues have continued with reinforcements in the summer transfer window as they look to return to competition after a failed season that left them without participation in European competitions.

After transferring Moises Caicedo a few days ago, the club from Stamford Bridge has also confirmed the transfer of another midfielder, Romeo Lavia, who comes from Southampton.

“Chelsea have completed the signing of midfielder Romeo Lavia from Southampton”.

“The 19-year-old has signed a seven-year contract at Stamford Bridge and further strengthens Mauricio Pochettino’s squad,” the announcement states.

The transfer of Lavia has cost Chelsea a full 68 million euros, including bonuses, while he will keep the jersey number 45.
