Romeo Lavia arrived from Southampton during the summer transfer window, but he hasn’t kicked a ball for Chelsea outside of training.
Not the best start
Lavia’s entrance came as a bit of a surprise in the end. Because the team was planning to spend heavily on Moises Caicedo in addition to Enzo Fernandez, another costly January acquisition.
Nevertheless, it appeared that Chelsea had been following Lavia for some time. And were rather fond of him, as seen by their extensive efforts to acquire him.
Romeo Lavia Injury
He picks an injury. It prevents him from ever being included in the Chelsea team.
Jacobs anticipates Lavia returning in time for the holiday games. He states: “Romeo Lavia will not be fully back for at least a few weeks. Due to an ankle injury he sustained upon joining Chelsea. While some reports stated in October that it could be able to play by late November, this may be a little optimistic. Lavia should be completely recovered in time for the celebratory games, in my opinion. It has similarities to [Armando] Broja. He will resume training. But it will still take him another two to three weeks before he is truly prepared to play for ninety minutes.
