Chelsea transfer news – Mauricio Pochettino keen to sign Romeo Lavia
According to GiveMeSport, if Southampton go down then Romeo Lavia will on the way out. It’s thought that Chelsea are keen to sign Lavia, so they are the club to watch if the Saints do go relegated from the Premier League, which looks the most likely outcome at this stage in the season.

Chelsea transfer news – Christian Pulisic or Romelu Lukaku involved to sign Victor Osimhen in swap deal
Victor Osimhen is a player who is on everyone’s radar at the moment, given his immense work with Napoli this season. The Serie A goal machine is rumoured with a move away this summer, with wealthy European clubs lining up to sign him.
According to the latest from the Daily Mail, Chelsea are lining up to sign Osimhen. It’s thought that either Christian Pulisic or Romelu Lukaku will be used as a makeweight to bring his value down. Despite Boehly boasting a lot of wealth at Stamford Bridge, his aim is to bring down the current wage bill, so letting go of a player in exchange for somebody better is the right way to do that.
