Chelsea now ‘feel they can clinch deal’ for £106m star at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea are growing in confidence that they can ‘find a way’ of tempting Benfica into sanctioning Enzo Fernandez’s move to Stamford Bridge, journalist Simon Philip has told GiveMeSport.

Blues boss Graham Potter could welcome further reinforcements to west London ahead of the 11pm deadline on January 31.

Chelsea transfer news – Enzo Fernandez

According to Record, Chelsea are preparing a fresh offer as they look to get a deal for Fernandez over the line ahead of the transfer window slamming shut.

The report suggests the Blues are refusing to give up in their pursuit of the Argentina international after seeing previous offers turned down by Benfica.

But the same Portuguese media outlet, via Football.London, has revealed that Fernandez is set to receive close to £2million from his current employers as compensation for his aborted switch.

Benfica boss Roger Schmidt has insisted he does not expect the central midfielder to complete a switch before the deadline unless his £106million release clause is paid upfront.

Phillips recently told GiveMeSport that Chelsea could push for an agreement despite being unwilling to meet that hefty figure.
