A report has been released suggesting that Benfica are ignoring Chelsea’s attempt to lure Enzo Fernandez to the club by denying him an opportunity to play in the game against Braga. Chelsea have now launched a renewed bid and are looking to include a player in the deal.
Chelsea want to pay PS106m release clause in full
This year’s transfer window may be a distant memory, but it’s not too late to score a bargain or two. Among the plethora of targets on offer, Benfica haven’t been short of a snatching a top notch midfielder or two, with the likes of Orkun Kocku and the diminutive Josefo Santi on the hit list. That’s a good thing for a club that has a plethora of attacking options in the wings. The likes of Fernando Llorente have long been a target of their own and it’s a cliche to expect a midfielder of the calibre to command a premium. Luckily for Chelsea, they have not been too short on cash to spare, with the likes of James Rodrigues, Ruben Loftus and Jordi Mascolo among the prized possessions in their squad.
Chelsea want to include a player in part-exchange
Chelsea have reportedly been trying to get a deal done with Benfica for midfielder Enzo Fernandez. A move for the youngster, 21, would make him one of the most expensive players in history, but his release clause could prove a hindrance.
Fernandez has been a standout player for Benfica this season. His impressive performances in the Portuguese league and Champions League helped the club to a top-four finish. This year, Fernandez also picked up the Young Player Award at the World Cup, which was won after Argentina beat France on penalties.
The 21-year-old has been linked with a number of clubs, including Chelsea and Liverpool. Chelsea are reportedly preparing to revive the deal by offering a player in part-exchange.
David Luiz is another player who has been linked with a move to Chelsea, but he is not expected to leave this summer. Timo Werner and Malang Sarr are also in the frame.
Chelsea want to revive their bid by including a player in part-exchange
Chelsea are set to revive their bid for Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernandez by including a player in a part-exchange deal. The Blues are keen to make the move and are ready to pay a club-record fee for the Argentine.
A member of Chelsea’s staff confirmed on Twitter yesterday that the club had met with the player’s agent and were prepared to include a player in a part-exchange. It’s unclear how much they want to pay, but Fernandez is in high demand after his World Cup victory yalla shoot.
Chelsea have been linked with a number of players in the January transfer window. They’ve also made a bid for winger Mykailo Mudryk, who has an estimated valuation of PS65m. During the transfer window, Mudryk is expected to join Arsenal, but the Gunners are reportedly confident of beating Chelsea to the deal.
Chelsea want to muscle in on Arsenal’s transfer
If Chelsea are to muscle in on Arsenal’s transfer, it will have to be a big one. Despite a disappointing run of form, the Blues are still in the race for the Premier League title. However, they are still eight points clear of their rivals.
Chelsea have been linked with a number of players in the past few weeks. They have a number of targets, including Alberto Moreno, Gabriel Jesus, Kurt Zouma, and Ezequiel Lavezzi.
The Blues have made a number of signings this summer, spending PS274 million on new players. However, they have cooled their interest in signing Youri Tielemans, and have not yet made a bid for the Belgian.
While the Gunners have been on the hunt for a new centre-back, they are yet to find one. Emery has been keen to get a top-class player to anchor the back line, and has been linked with a number of stars. One option is Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld. But he has a clause in his contract that means he can earn up to PS25 million if he leaves.
Enzo Fernandez wants to be left out of Benfica’s game at Braga
Enzo Fernandez is reportedly set to leave Benfica in January and join Chelsea. The 21-year-old is a big name in European football and has been linked to a number of top clubs. He played a crucial role in Argentina’s World Cup victory and was named the tournament’s Young Player.
Benfica are currently top of the Primeira Liga table, five points clear of FC Porto. They lost 3-0 to SC Braga on the opening day of the season, and could lose another game on Friday to Portimonense. However, if they win, they will close the gap to one point.
Several elite clubs are vying for the services of Fernandez, including Liverpool, Manchester United, and Paris Saint-Germain. But with his release clause at EUR120 million, Benfica will likely not accept any offers that fall below this amount.
