'As things stand': Fabrizio Romano shares fresh Enzo Fernandez update
Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur are just some of the clubs reportedly eyeing Enzo Fernandez.
It’s little surprise that so many Premier League clubs are said to be in pursuit of Fernandez. The 21-year-old won the Best Young Player award at the World Cup, which he helped the Albiceleste win.
Fernandez looked set for a more peripheral role in Qatar. However, by the end of the tournament, he had become a key man for Lionel Scaloni’s men.
Now, with the January transfer window looming, the youngster will be a player in demand, with elite clubs seemingly circling ahead of a potential move.
‘The race for Enzo is open’
Fabrizio Romano has now issued a fresh transfer update relating to Fernandez amid reported interest from the likes of Liverpool.
The transfer insider has actually poured cold water on links between the Anfield outfit and the Argentina star.
Indeed, Romano also played down any suggestions of Chelsea having triggered Fernandez’s release clause.
This, in turn, will likely come as a boost for the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur.
While the race for Fernandez may be open, it won’t be an easy one to win by any means.
Benfica hold virtually all the cards, what with a £105million release clause and a contract until 2027.
Fernandez would no doubt be an incredible addition for any leading Premier League team.
However, the likelihood is that such a huge signing may not be a possibility until the summer.
Nonetheless, it’ll be exciting to see which club can go on to win the race. Will Fernandez be in the Premier League in 2023?
