TRANSFER NEWS: Chelsea Beat Arsenal To Snap Up Starlet
Chelsea have struck a deal to sign promising Barcelona starlet Oriol Romeu with the 20-year-old moving to Stamford Bridge for around £4m.
Arsenal have previously been linked with Romeu but Sky Sports claim that a deal is now in place with Chelsea with just the finer details to be finalised before the signing is confirmed.
The Spanish sources also believe a clause will be inserted allowing Barcelona the chance to re-sign the player in 2013 if they so choose.
New Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas tried to capture Romeu while at Porto but it now seems he has got his man with the player travelling to London in the coming days to complete the transfer.
