Chelsea boost as details of Academy Player of the Year Livramento’s Southampton switch surface

Chelsea boost as details of Academy Player of the Year Livramento’s Southampton switch surface


An insight into the finer details of Chelsea talent Valentino Livramento’s move to Southampton has been forthcoming on Monday evening.

Who is Tino Livramento?

Englishman Livramento long stood as one of the most highly regarded talents on the books at Stamford Bridge.

The teen is a versatile performer who generally lines out in a wing-back role on the right. He is also more than capable of featuring in either a more traditional full-back role, or even on the wing, though.

This comes with Livramento’s most impressive traits often showcased in the final-third.

He has earned widespread praise for a stellar blend of pace, ability in one-on-one situations, final ball and, perhaps above all else, outstanding fitness levels.

The starlet, in turn, managed to prove himself as the standout performer for Chelsea’s U23 side last season.

Bombing up and down the right flank with equal vigour and quality, Livramento racked up an impressive two goals and six assists across 20 Premier League 2 appearances.

In a further six outings between the EFL Trophy and FA Youth Cup, meanwhile, he directly contributed to another five goals.

Livramento’s stellar exploits, in turn, saw him recognised by both Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel, and his fellow talents at youth level, back in May.

After being called up for senior duties for the first time ahead of the Blues’ Premier League meeting with Manchester City, the gifted teen was subsequently named as the Academy Player of the Year in West London:

Blues return?

It therefore no doubt come as a major concern amongst the Chelsea faithful when word was forthcoming earlier today that Livramento was on the verge of moving on.

With the likes of Reece James and Cesar Azpilicueta blocking his path to first-team action at Stamford Bridge, the explosive right-back recently came to the decision to test his talents elsewhere.

Premier League rivals Southampton, in turn, swooped, with Livramento’s St. Mary’s switch having subsequently been confirmed this afternoon:

As outlined above, though, on Monday evening, an insight into some of the finer details of the agreement struck between Chelsea and the Saints has been forthcoming.

And the news will no doubt be roundly welcomed by fans of the former.

As per the Evening Standard, Livramento’s signature set Southampton back a fee of around 5 million pounds.

Crucially when it comes to the youngster’s long-term future, though, it has also been revealed that his now-ex-club have secured a buy-back clause, coming in at 25 million pounds.

Livramento, who has followed the likes of Marc Guehi and Lewis Bate in departing West London this summer, could therefore yet have a future in blue.
