Chelsea could find Jorginho’s replacement in Enzo Fernandez


Chelsea keeps splashing money in the January transfer window. Todd Boehly has backed up manager Graham Potter. He ensures that the manager gets the reinforcements he wants.

Noni Madueke is their latest signing which was unveiled on Friday night. He joins the list of Joao Felix, David Fofana, Benoit Badiashile, Andrey Santos, and Mykhalo Mudryk joining the Blues this month.

This may not be enough for Todd Boehly as he wants to add reinforcements in the middle of the park. Jorginho’s contract runs out at the end of the season and if an extension isn’t agreed then he will leave in the summer or maybe this month.

Blues now wants to sign his replacement and the first name that comes is Enzo Fernandez from Benfica. According to Fabrizio Romano, the Blues agreed to personal terms with the Argentinian but the deal couldn’t get completed due to transfer fee talks with Benfica.

Enzo could be an excellent replacement for Jorginho in Chelsea

Chelsea might go back in for Enzo Fernandez, this possibility isn’t ruled out yet. Speaking to GiveMeSport, journalist Dean Jones said:

“I’ve spoken to a couple of people around Chelsea who say, while it is unlikely at the moment, they don’t have a new plan to go and fix that midfield problem they’ve got.

“So if the alternative fallback options to Enzo Fernandez don’t come off, they might go back in for him again.”

If Chelsea really wants a replacement for Jorginho, then they must reignite their interest in Fernandez. His excellent performances in World Cup for Argentina and in the Champions League for Benfica have already shown his potential.

Jorginho is getting caught up by age, meanwhile, Benfica’s maestro is still young. He is best known for his creativity in the middle of the park, line-breaking passes, and his strength off the ball.

If Blues somehow get to sign him, it would be a perfect replacement for the Italian. After which they can finally wave him bye.
