Former Liverpool player suggests Romeo Lavia was a panic buy


Don Hutchison, a former player for Liverpool, believes that a few of Chelsea’s most recent additions were rash purchases.

Romeo Lavia and Nicolas Jackson were among the many players Chelsea brought in during the most recent transfer window.

And Don Hutchison has said on ESPN that those player was bought out of panic.

Don Hutchison says Romeo Lavia was an impulse purchase

Lavia was acquired by the Blues from Southampton in the summer for £53 million.

Due to an injury, he has not yet appeared in a game for his new team. But Mauricio Pochettino anticipates that he will soon be well.

Hutchison has harshly critical of his teammate Mykhailo Mudryk and believes that Chelsea panicked when they bought Lavia.

He shared:

“I was chatting to a mate of mine, a Liverpool fan, and it was like you look back at the transfer window and you go Liverpool nearly bought [Moises] Caicedo. But Chelsea’s plan was, ‘Oh, we’ll buy him.’ Then Liverpool said, ‘All right, then, we’ll buy Lavia’, and then Chelsea went, ‘Oh, we’ll buy him!”

“And they were just panic buying everywhere and you look at it like… Mudryk, who I really, really want to love, but it’s almost like he’s too fast. He needs to slow down.”

They attempted to sign him last year, just after his transfer from Manchester City to Southampton, according to the trustworthy Fabrizio Romano. Therefore, Chelsea had not discovered this player at the final minute.

it would be prudent to hold off on making a decision about Lavia, particularly because he hasn’t actually played under Pochettino.
