Without much doubts, Chelsea football club will most definitely remain keen on further strengthening their midfield options before the January transfer window closes.
Do remember that the West London club have endured a very disappointing 2022/2023 football season and are currently occupying the 10th position on the Premier League table.
Due to their poor run of form, Chelsea football club have made their moves and have completed the signings of David Datro Fofana, Andrey Santos, Benoit Badiashile, Joao Felix, Mykhailo Mudryk and Noni Madueke.
But now, Chelsea football club are on the lookout for midfield reinforcements and have been linked with a transfer move for highly-rated Benfica central midfielder Enzo Fernandez.
The 22-year-old Argentina International, who signed up for Benfica after departing Argentine side River Plate back in 2022 has been an important member of the first-team squad.
The young central midfielder has been hugely influential for Benfica so far this 2022/2023 season, scoring four goals and providing seven assists in 28 appearances in all competitions.
His impressive performances in midfield is believed to have caught the attention of Chelsea and according to reports from The Sun, the Blues are keen on signing him.
The reports further claimed that after failing in their last approach for Enzo Fernandez, Chelsea football club are already preparing to submit their final bid to sign the young midfielder.
It is believed that Chelsea manager Graham Potter wants to add more creativity to his options in midfield and he has identified Enzo Fernandez as a needed addition to his squad.
But then, it remains to be seen if their final attempt will be capable of convincing Benfica football club into offloading the highly-rated Enzo Fernandez before the transfer window closes.
