Lavia expressed his joy at joining Chelsea.

Chelsea's summer spree shows no signs of slowing down as they secure yet another addition to their squad in 19-year-old midfielder Romeo Lavia from Southampton.

The deal, valued at £53 million with an additional £5 million in potential add-ons, marks Chelsea's eighth acquisition in this transfer window, with the West London club successfully outmanoeuvring Liverpool for Lavia's coveted signature.

Hailing from Belgium, Lavia has committed to a substantial seven-year tenure with Chelsea under the guidance of manager Mauricio Pochettino. This move is indicative of Chelsea's ambitious approach to reinforcing their roster and maintaining their competitive edge.

Expressing his enthusiasm about the transfer, Lavia conveyed: "I’m really happy to join Chelsea and be a part of this exciting project. It’s an amazing football club with a great history and I’m really excited to get started.

"I can’t wait to meet all my new team-mates and build chemistry together to achieve great things together."

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino on the signing of Lavia said: "We all know him, his quality, his profile. I think he is the perfect player for this project.

"We are excited and we are so happy to add him to the squad."
