Enzo Fernandez breaks transfer silence over £105m Chelsea and Liverpool move speculation


Enzo Fernandez has broken his silence following transfer speculation surrounding the midfielder with a potential move to Chelsea. The 21-year-old was one of the shining lights at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, with it thought Premier League clubs including Liverpool, Manchester United, Newcastle and Chelsea are all currently showing an interest in signing the Benfica star.

Fernandez's performances have seemingly caught the eye of the Blues' hierarchy, with his release clause set to cost any willing suitors upwards of £100million for his services. Chelsea are also already set to bring in Benoit Badiashile from Monaco. Asked about his future and a potential Benfica exit while celebrating the World Cup win in Argentina, Fernandez told a crowd of fans:

“I don't know anything about that. It's up to my agent, I don't want to get involved. ''I'm focused on Benfica, in a few days we have an important game. I have a flight at night to play in the game on Friday."

With N'Golo Kante and Jorginho cited as potential departures next summer, Chelsea could hope to land the 21-year-old starlet to bolster Graham Potter's midfield options. Mason Mount is also said to be held in contract talks with club, as owner Todd Boehly looks to earmark success moving forward with the correct balance in all areas.
