• Why The Blues Want To Splash Over £100 Million On The World Cup Winner
  • What does He Add To Chelsea?

Chelsea are insisting on signing Enzo Fernandez this month, as they fear top clubs could swoop in for him next summer. The Blues have already spent over £200 million this month landing top talents to improve their squad, still Chelsea are reportedly ready to break the British transfer fee record for the Argentine, so why is he a key target for the West London side?

New Chelsea owners are championing a new era at the club, a new way of doing things, and a new pattern of going all out to secure outstanding talents; Enzo Fernandez fits right into their plan. The 22-year-old midfielder is one of the most highly rated midfielders in the World, emphasizing that fact with his impactful and matured performance for Argentina at the 2022 World Cup; The potential is clearly there.

The Blues’ injury record in the middle of the park has necessitated the need for a recruitment. Ngolo Kante has been out for the majority of this campaign, Mateo Kovacic has been battling recurring ankle and calf problems. Summer signing Denis Zakaria is also out through injury alongside Ruben Loftus-Cheek. Jorginho has been the most consistent midfielder for Chelsea this season, and he also has not been in the best form.

What Enzo Fernandez Adds To Chelsea

Enzo Fernandez is one of the few midfielders in the World that can do it all on the pitch of play. As efficient as he can be going forward, Enzo Fernandez is also strong defensively. Fernandez will add grit, dynamism and incredible passing range to the Chelsea midfield. He is a key cog for Benfica in their impressive campaign so far, and his performances at the World Cup earned him the best young player award. He might not get as many goals or assists, but he does possess the ability to break lines defensive lines, and that is a problem that Chelsea currently have.

Additionally, Chelsea are looking to form a new defensive base where Enzo would be the most important cog. There have been talks of the club signing Moises Caicedo from Brighton, and also the possibility of new signing Andrey Santos coming back to Cobham after The Under 20 South American championships.

£106 Million is a lot of money for a midfielder, but Chelsea have made it clear that they are building for the future, and taking a risk to sign a 22- year old World Cup winner could pay off in the future.
