Lavia wants to join Chelsea despite Liverpool agreeing £60m deal

Romeo Lavia's preference is to join Chelsea despite Liverpool agreeing a £60m deal for the Southampton midfielder.

No agreement has been made between Southampton and Chelsea for the midfielder yet - but one is thought to be close.

Sources have told Sky Sports News that the total package agreed between Liverpool and Southampton on Sunday night is worth £60m.

Liverpool have already missed out on Moises Caicedo to Chelsea. The Blues have agreed a deal with Brighton worth a British record £115m for Caicedo. That follows Liverpool having a £111m offer accepted only for the 21-year-old to inform them he intended to join Chelsea.

Southampton had been holding firm on their £50m valuation of 19-year-old Lavia. Chelsea had made an offer of £48m last week, while Liverpool had seen three previous offers turned down this summer.
