Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia has decided to join Chelsea over Liverpool.
The two clubs have agreed a fee in the region of £50million plus add-ons before sealing the 19-year-old’s transfer.
Chelsea faced competition from Liverpool for the Belgium international, but the Anfield side are aware of Lavia’s choice.
Lavia would be joining another Liverpool target, Moises Caicedo, in moving to Stamford Bridge.
Caicedo is moving to Chelsea in a British record £115m deal, despite Liverpool seeing a £110m bid accepted by Brighton. The 21-year-old Ecuador international ultimately expressed a preference to play for the west London team.
