TRANSFER ROUNDUP: LAVIA’S PREFERENCE FOR CHELSEA; LIVERPOOL TARGETS TCHOUAMENI

Chelsea is poised to finalize the £115 million transfer of Moises Caicedo, a British record.

After initially appearing to lose out to a surprise Liverpool proposal, Mauricio Pochettino is now expected to ultimately land his top target thanks to a successful medical and a lengthy contract signed.

Additionally, Romeo Lavia has now selected Chelsea over Liverpool, continuing their deals.

Deivid Washington is expected to join from Santos, and personal agreements with Crystal Palace player Michael Olise are nearly finalized.

As they try to cap up their summer incomings, Arsenal should today announce the acquisition of David Raya from Brentford on an initial loan contract.

However, there are many players available in the opposite direction, and Gift Orban at Gent and Folarin Balogun have both emerged as unexpected targets for Tottenham in their search for a Harry Kane replacement.

In light of ties to Aurelien Tchouameni and Federico Valverde, Liverpool is reportedly searching for Caicedo and Lavia’s replacements.

Manchester United is also rumored to have made bids for Amadou Onana and Benjamin Pavard, however Sofyan Amrabat remains at the top of the list.

Neymar is about to finalize a lucrative transfer to Saudi Arabia, while West Ham has started negotiations to acquire Mohammed Kudus.

Romeo Lavia decides to join Chelsea over Liverpool

Romeo Lavia has decided to switch from Liverpool to Chelsea.

That is the bombshell news tonight from The Athletic, according to David Orstein, who also claims that Belgian international Moises Caicedo has chosen Stamford Bridge over Anfield.

With the connection between the two clubs reportedly being good and no complications anticipated, Chelsea is now anticipated to finalize a deal with Southampton for Lavia worth an initial £50 million plus add-ons.

Yet another enormous victory for Mauricio Pochettino and a devastating defeat for Jurgen Klopp…

Aurelien Tchouameni is still wanted by Liverpool

Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia appear to be headed to Chelsea, leaving Liverpool searching for replacement midfield options.

The Reds have already added Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai to their roster this summer, but they still require additional middle-field help in light of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho’s moves to Saudi Arabia, where they will join players like Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who have already left Anfield.

Due to injuries, neither Thiago Alcantara nor Stefan Bajcetic played throughout the preseason, highlighting the need for additional players.

David Ornstein of The Athletic reports that Liverpool are among the top clubs still showing interest in Aurelien Tchouameni despite having been outbid by Real Madrid for his services in a massive €100 million transfer last summer.

The French international is an important member of Carlo Ancelotti’s starting lineup at the Bernabeu, and he played the full 90 minutes of their LaLiga debut against Athletic Club on Saturday.

Neither Madrid nor Tchouameni are reportedly interested in leaving at this time.

Chelsea has finished the initial Moises Caicedo interview.

Nizaar Kinsella of Standard Sport and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano also claim that Chelsea had already performed Caicedo’s first in-house media interviews.

If official confirmation of that large £115 million sale wasn’t due this evening, it would be a huge surprise.

Chelsea fans don’t have much longer to wait…

Chelsea is about to confirm the signing of Moises Caicedo

The shocking transfer of Moises Caicedo from Brighton to Chelsea might be confirmed as soon as tonight.

After a protracted negotiation with Liverpool, the Blues have decided to break the British transfer record for the second time in as many months in order to sign the highly-touted 21-year-old Ecuador midfielder for £100 million up front and an additional £15 million in attainable add-ons, plus a sell-on clause.

According to Nizaar Kinsella of Standard Sport, the transfer could be finalized soon as Caicedo has now passed his physical and agreed to an enormous eight-year contract with a 12-month extension option through 2032.

Chelsea chooses a new striker.

In the last days of the transfer market, Chelsea do not want to add a new striker, according to Standard Sport’s Nizaar Kinsella.

Armando Broja has drawn interest from AC Milan, but once his injury is healed, the native Albanian international will rejoin the first team.

And rather of bringing in a center-forward like Dusan Vlahovic, the Blues will try to recruit a winger.

A desired man is an Arsenal defender

Newcastle is continuing to show interest in Arsenal’s full-back.

Kieran Tierney is the final summer signing Eddie Howe is after.

Since his time at Celtic, the Magpies have admired the Scotland international and have kept an eye on his situation, especially this summer.

His alleged £30 million price tag has thus far proven to be a deterrent for a number of would-be buyers, but the PA news agency believes Newcastle has tested the waters once more as the summer transfer deadline draws near.

Spurs plan to make some transfers.

Before the end of the transfer season, Tottenham are anticipated to formally approach Gent forward Gift Orban, but the club has prioritized outgoings following Harry Kane’s departure for Bayern Munich, according to Standard Sport’s Dan Kilpatrick.

Ange Postecoglou reaffirmed that clearing the decks is now the focus after Sunday’s Premier League opener against Brentford.

Spurs have failed to unload players this summer, with only Harry Winks, Joe Rodon, and Kane leaving the club thus far.

Along with Davinson Sanchez, who appeared off the bench in the 2-2 draw in west London, Tanguy Ndombele, Hugo Lloris, Djed Spence, Sergio Reguilon, and Japhet Tanganga were all left out of the team and are free to depart Spurs.

Dr. Moises Caicedo finishes his medical

Chelsea is about to finalize Moises Caicedo’s signing.

The midfielder’s medical was completed before to a £115 million transfer, according to The Athletic, and he signed an eight-year contract with a ninth-year option.

A magnificent double swoop from Al-Hilal

Al-Hilal want a companion for their new superstar after acquiring Neymar for £80 million on a salary of £2.5 million per week, according to Standard Sport’s Nizaar Kinsella.

Aleksandar Mitrovic is the man they should have hired.

Man Utd was given a deadline by Harry Maguire.

Manager Erik ten Hag has stated that Harry Maguire need to quit Manchester United if he lacks the self-assurance to compete for a position.

Since Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez, and Victor Lindelof were favoured in central defense last season and Maguire, 30, made only eight Premier League starts, Ten Hag removed Maguire from his position as captain last month.

Maguire, who was acquired by United from Leicester City for £80 million in 2019, has reached an agreement with West Ham on a transaction for £30 million.

He previously held the record for the most expensive defender in the world.

Ten Hag told reporters, “He has to fight for his place and has the skills to be a top-class center back. ”

He is the best for England, and I anticipate that he will be the best for us, but he needs to show it.

He must go if he lacks the confidence to engage in combat.

He must make a choice.

However, I am content with him.

High-level players who may not be starting are necessary, however that can alter.
