Chelsea have reached an agreement to sign Watford center-back Travis Akomeah, reliable Fabrizio Romano reports.
The Blues have beaten Liverpool and Bournemouth for the 16-year-old.
Chelsea’s Academy has a fantastic recent record of developing good center-backs (Christensen, Chalobah, Tomori, Ake) so Akomeah is definitely in good hands.
Hopefully, we’ll see Travis breaking into the first team in a few years’ time.
Meanwhile, Fabrizio Romano says that Chelsea are still ‘waiting for [a] first-team full-back to arrive soon’.
