Chelsea’s Todd Boehly preparing higher offer than Liverpool for exciting youngster

Jul 28, 2023

Chelsea face Liverpool on the opening weekend of the 2023/24 Premier League season, but the two English top-flight stalwarts could be battling for a different kind of result before that match.

The Blues are hoping to re-emerge as a force next season after an horrific 2022/23 under Thomas Tuchel, Graham Potter and, latterly, Frank Lampard.

Much of the blame could be pointed at owner, Todd Boehly, after he bought too many players in his opening two transfer windows, and it meant that the managers had a top-heavy squad that they couldn’t possibly keep happy.

This summer has seen a complete role reversal and a fire sale of sorts has continued since the end of last season.

As Mauricio Pochettino gets started in earnest, he’ll clearly require one or two new faces about the place, and as reliable journalist, Ben Jacobs, has tweeted, they’re prepared to go all in for Romeo Lavia, even beating any offer that Liverpool might put on the table.

As Jacobs also suggests, however, their bid for his services could be doomed to failure as it appears the player prefers a move to Anfield.

Regardless of the final sale price, it would be some capture for Jurgen Klopp after losing his captain, Jordan Henderson, and with Fabinho on the verge of moving to the Saudi Pro League too.

For Chelsea, it looks like it will be back to the drawing board.
