Chelsea are making plenty of progress in discussions with Benfica to complete midfielder Enzo Fernandez’s deal this week.
Fernandez shone at the 2022 FIFA World Cup with Argentina and is widely expected to leave Benfica this January transfer window.
According to transfer guru, Fabrizio Romano, “At the moment, there are negotiations ongoing for Enzo Fernandez, Chelsea will push this week to get it done, it is really advanced, but it is not completed yet.
“It will depend on Benfica, on president Rui Costa who always said he wanted £106m clause or nothing.
“Chelsea would ideally like a different structure to the £106m clause, but the player really wants to join. It will be up to Benfica, though, so we will see what happens in the next few days.”
Chelsea are already in pole position to sign the Argentina star ahead of Liverpool and Manchester United.
