The 19 year old has been at Chelsea since he was 8, and while his contract has expired at Stamford Bridge this summer, the club have offered him a new deal.
He’s decided against taking them up on it however, and now looks set to make an interesting move to the Serie B side managed by Pippo Inzaghi
It’s interesting to see that Watford were one of the other clubs interested. Staying in England, at a team where he’s far more likely to get a first team chance than at Chelsea, would have been the easy move.
But instead Harvey looks like he’s going to head out and roll the dice, a move we really applaud.
Chelsea will be frustrated about losing a player they’ve developed for over ten years. But if they don’t offer a pathway to the first team, what do they expect?
