Chelsea wants to sign Tino Livramento from Southampton this summer


With Southampton’s relegation, Chelsea now have the opportunity to bring Tino Livramento back to Stamford Bridge. Back in August 2021, the Blues sold the 20-year-old Tino Livramento to Southampton for a fee of £5 million. However, as part of the negotiations between the two clubs, Chelsea managed to secure a buyback clause for Livramento.

According to information provided by The Athletic, a deal to bring Tino Livramento back to Chelsea could be at a price of approximately £35 million. Thanks to the inclusion of Chelsea’s sell-on clause in the previous transfer agreement.

However, some might argue that it would be unwise for Chelsea to activate Tino Livramento’s buyback clause. Mauricio Pochettino already have Reece James as a reliable right-back option and Malo Gusto for that position. Hence, the necessity for Livramento’s return may be a question.

What does Chelsea plan to do with Livramento?

Indeed, Chelsea invested £26.3 million to acquire a 20-year-old right-back from Lyon in January. Hence, it would appear peculiar to pursue Tino Livramento as well. Thus, potentially leading to a surplus of talented right-backs vying for a single position.

However, if Mauricio Pochettino opts to deploy Reece James in a midfield role, then the idea of pursuing Livramento could become more reasonable and strategically sound.

A substantial sum of £35 million for a position that doesn’t urgently require reinforcements might be better allocated towards acquiring a striker or a new central midfielder.

Nonetheless, it is worth monitoring Livramento’s situation. Since, Chelsea stands to gain a significant financial benefit through the sell-on clause. Even if he ends up on another club.
