Chelsea will pay £55m for Lafia – and are preparing to make a bid for Caicedo

Chelsea will pay £55m for Lafia – and are preparing to make a bid for Caicedo

Saturday night wasn’t as crowded as Friday night when it came to news surrounding Moises Caicedo and a possible move to Liverpool or Chelsea, and the situation seemed to be the same as Friday night.

It may now appear that Saturday will be a crucial day when it comes to Caicedo, and Southampton’s Romeo Lafia, who both clubs are interested in.

As for Lafia, the Belgian journalist Sasha Tavoleri Given that Chelsea’s offer totals £55m, three of the millions depend on the clauses. That is ten million more than Liverpool’s last bid for the 19-year-old, which was rejected at the start of the week.

Tavolieri adds that some details remain before the clubs reach a full agreement, and Chelsea want Lafia to sign a seven-year contract. According to the journalist, the club will prepare a medical examination so that Liverpool will not have the opportunity to hijack the transfer deal, as they tried with Caicedo.

For the Ecuadorean from Brighton, none of the journalists we trust the most gave fresh updates overnight. So we have to deal with information from Fabrizio Romano, who about this particular transition was not quite on the same wavelength with guys like James Perse and Paul Joyce. The transfer journalist now writes that Chelsea feel more confident about securing the 21-year-old, and that the offer they are preparing will not be less than Liverpool’s.

But for now, the situation is such that the Reds are the only ones whose bid has been accepted, and it is up to Chelsea to match it.
