With the departures of Mason Mount, Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante and Ruben Loftus-Cheek all from west London, Chelsea have left a huge void in their midfield.

It also breaks the British record, a accolade previously held by Chelsea when they paid £107m for Enzo Fernandes.

For Reds fans, it immediately assuages ​​their growing fears of replacing the exodus of outgoing midfielders.

Not only did they lose captain Jordan Henderson, but they also saw defensive midfielder Fabinho leave Anfield for Saudi Arabia as well.
