At different stages, it looked like they might have been putting on the red of Liverpool rather than the blue of Chelsea but, after managing to convince both players, they agreed long-term contracts in west London. Liam Tharme looked at why they were both in-demand and what they will bring to Stamford Bridge — read it below.

"He's performed to a very high level in the Premier League over the last decade, constantly producing good numbers season after season, " said the West Ham manager.
"His leadership qualities are obviously another huge plus for us – he’ll be a big voice for us, someone who drives the team on from the middle of the pitch. We’re excited to get him up and running, for what will be another busy season on both the domestic and European front. "West Ham's new arrivalThe big news from West Ham this week is the confirmation of Ward-Prowse's arrival. A £30m signing from Southampton, the 28-year-old is part of the club's contingency plan to replace Declan Rice who left for Arsenal earlier in the summer.
A deal worth £115million ($146m) for Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo has ensured that Enzo Fernandez held the British transfer record for just six months following his £106million move to Stamford Bridge. Liverpool, edged out in that pursuit, now appear to have been deprived of their secondary midfield target after Southampton’s Romeo Lavia also made his preference Chelsea and the club’s agreed a deal of £53million plus £5million in add ons. That means Boehly and Clearlake have committed north of £300million in transfer fees on central midfielders alone in 2023 once deals for Lesley Ugochukwu and Andrey Santos are factored in. But how are they allowed to do it? Read more below.
