Chelsea’s highly-rated teen Tino Livramento ‘set to join Southampton in £5m deal’ amid transfer interest from AC Milan

SOUTHAMPTON are set to win the race for Chelsea youngster Tino Livramento, according to reports.

The 18-year-old is entering the final year of his contract at Stamford Bridge but talks over an extension are said to have collapsed.

Thomas Tuchel called the defender up to two Premier League matchday squads last season but he is yet to make a senior debut for the club.

Interest heightened in Livramento earlier in the summer and Brighton were linked amid talk that he wanted first-team football next season.

But, according to the Mail, negotiations have advanced over a £5million transfer to Southampton.

The South Coast outfit are said to be offering a five-year contract to the 18-year-old and the chance to play a role in the senior side.

After losing Ryan Bertrand on a free transfer, Kyle Walker-Peters and £11m signing from Brest, Romain Perraud, are set to be Ralph Hasenhuttl’s first-choice full-backs in the new campaign.

But Livramento, who won Chelsea’s Academy Player of the Season award for 2020-21, would feature as an understudy and is capable of playing on both flanks in defence and midfield.

Southampton have already snapped up Blues prospect Dynel Simeu in an estimated £1.5m deal earlier this summer.

Competition for Livramento’s signature has been considerable with Manchester City, Arsenal, AC Milan, Monaco and RB Leipzig all named as interested.

Chelsea have seen a number of young stars depart on permanent deals this summer.

West Ham snapped up defender Pierre Ekwah-Elimby before Fikayo Tomori’s loan stint in Milan was made permanent for £26m.

Crystal Palace paid £21m for Marc Guehi and Leeds secured a £1.5m deal for Lewis Bate, with Charlie Wiggett, Myles Peart-Harris and Jon Russell joining Newcastle, Brentford and Huddersfield respectively.
