Chelsea planning to get the signature of Southampton star Romeo Lavia

Chelsea are in a strong position to land Lavia at a reduced fee.

Journalist Rudy Galetti has revealed to GIVEMESPORT, Chelsea have now opened talks with Southampton for summer target Romeo Lavia.

The Saints star has been subject to interest from Chelsea in the past and Galetti expects the West London club to push hard for a move.

Chelsea look set to reignite their pursuit of the Belgian starlet once again. Chelsea are once again eyeing up a move for the teenager, with Football Insider saying that Todd Boehly is closing in on his primary target.

The report adds a cutthroat deal could be struck between Chelsea and relegation-zoned Southampton for around £45 million, as the club eye up a bargain following the south coast club’s likely relegation.

On the 19-year-old, Galetti told GIVEMESPORT: “Romeo Lavia is undoubtedly one of the most discussed players for the next transfer market. There have been some excellent performances for the Belgian young talent with Southampton and for sure it’s attracted the attention of many top Premier League clubs, like Man City, Arsenal and Manchester United. But at the moment it’s Chelsea that has shown the most interest and have opened talks with the Saints.”
