Chelsea seek to sign Fernandes for highest EPL transfer fee ever

Reporter Park Sang-hyun = Chelsea aim for Enzo Fernandez, the main player in Argentina’s FIFA World Cup win in Qatar, for the highest transfer fee ever in the English Premier League (EPL).

The BBC reported on the 31st (Korean time) that Chelsea had offered 105.6 million pounds (160.6 billion won) to Benfica for the signing of Argentinian midfielder Fernandez.

Benfica’s official position has not yet been released, but if the deal is concluded, it will record the highest ever EPL, exceeding the transfer fee of 100 million pounds (152.1 billion won) for Jack Grealish, who transferred from Aston Villa to Manchester City. 메이저놀이터

The chances of success are uncertain. This is because Benfica’s official position has not come out a day before the European transfer market deadline, and manager Roger Schmidt is rather complaining that “Chelsea is trying to shake Fernandez’s mind. Chelsea’s approach will be useless.”

But Fernandes could be the best signing Chelsea can target. Fernandez, who paid a transfer fee of 10 million pounds (15.2 billion won) when he moved from Argentinian River Plate to Benfica last year, took off as a world-class player through last year’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Not only did he lead Argentina to a World Cup victory 36 years after the 1986 tournament in Mexico, he also won the FIFA World Cup Young Player Award himself.

Fernández also scored Argentina’s second goal in their 2-0 win over Mexico in the second leg of the World Cup group stage.
