But as well as the Brighton midfielder, Chelsea are still also trying to sign another midfielder after they cancelled their move for Tyler Adams from Leeds for a reason that really, is still pretty unknown at the moment.
But according to a couple of good sources, Chelsea are close to agreeing a fee with Southampton now to sign midfielder Romeo Lavia!
Bobby Vincent of Football London reported it after Sky Sports hinted at the deal being on.
And then, reliable Belgian reporter Sacha Tavolieri followed that up confirming that a deal is close and cites a similar fee.
