Pochettino ‘keen’ on bringing 19-year-old star to Chelsea with summer move planned
Chelsea will have a busy summer with Mauricio Pochettino, provided he is confirmed as manager, needing to get to work in the transfer market fast.
To make any new acquisitions, an agreement with Todd Boehly on which players will be permitted to exit must be reached swiftly, having in mind that some of them may have lately been tied down to long contracts.

Chelsea supporters, as well as Boehly himself, must give the Argentinian time to work and not anticipate an immediate improvement in results and performances.
If he is given that courtesy, as Pochettino shown at Tottenham, he can get a squad chanting his song.
Of course, there will be players he wants to bring in to put his stamp on the group, and according to Football Insider, one of those might be Southampton’s teenage sensation, Romeo Lavia.
The site claims that conversations between the player and Chelsea have been ongoing for months, but his contract with the Saints does not end for several years, which means that even if Southampton is relegated, they may still command a high amount for his services.

Boehly hasn’t been afraid to back his managers in the transfer market, so money shouldn’t be an issue.
Lavia might end up at Stamford Bridge next season if Pochettino is ‘eager’ on signing him.
