New Player successfully completes Chelsea medical. Soon, an announcement
Romeo Lavia, a midfielder for Belgium, has completed his Chelsea medical ahead of his transfer from Southampton, according to Sky Sports writer Dharmesh Sheth.
Lavia will be transferred to Chelsea for £58 million, including add-ons, and must register by Friday at noon in order to be eligible to play against West Ham on Sunday.
Last year, Southampton only acquired Lavia from Manchester City in a transaction worth an initial £10.5 million, with potential add-ons raising the total to $14 million.
Liverpool and Southampton came to an agreement for Lavia to be signed for £60 million, but the midfielder decided against going to Liverpool. The 19-year-old was very clear about his desire to sign for Chelsea.
