Chelsea have stolen a march on Liverpool and Manchester United in the race to sign Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernandez. The Blues are ‘desperate’ to seal a deal for the highly-rated starlet in January and could smash their transfer record for the second time in 18 months to do so
Fernandez has been heavily tipped for a Premier League switch since bursting onto the scene as a wonderkid at River Plate in recent years.
Links have only intensified since his impressive start to life at Benfica, playing a starring role in the club’s successful Champions League group-stage campaign.
His stock soared higher at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, with FIFA naming him the Young Player of the Tournament after Argentina beat France to lift the coveted gold earlier this month.
And, according to The Sun, Chelsea are ready to react to the ever-increasing buzz around his current ability and sky-high potential.
