The Blues are seemingly interested to acquire the young Argentine midfielder from Benfica FC.
Chelsea have just recently acquired the Ivorian forward, David Datro Fofana and the French defender Benoit Badiashile. Since Todd Boehly’s takeover of the team, they have been going hard on developing with the young players. Which is very apparent as just within 3 days of the transfer window, they swiftly acquired 2 players with great potential.
However, the team then also showed some interest in the Benfica midfielder, Enzo Fernandez. Although, some fans weren’t expecting the acquisition to happen within the January transfer window. There might be a chance for that to happen.
In addition to Fernandez, the Blues are also reportedly looking out for Joao Felix, Jude Bellingham, and Rafael Leao. But, as of right now, they are putting their utmost attention on talks with the Primeira Liga club S.L. Benfica. As the Portuguese side club also seemingly recognizes that there is a very thin chance for them to keep a player with potential like Fernandez for a long period of time.
Previously, Benfica sold their Uruguayan striker Darwin Nunez to Liverpool. There have been speculations that the same situation might happen in Fernandez’s case too. The Argentine currently has a release clause of around £106m. This will definitely help the team to look for another potential striker and get ready for the upcoming season.
Fans of both Chelsea and Fernandez are excited to see the deal happen. As this will definitely help the player shine more in the field with an improved team. To learn the latest news about the Fernandez-Chelsea deal and many more January transfer window news, keep an eye on our website frequently.
