Chelsea will be one of the big players in this winter transfer window. In addition to the Benoît Badiashile file in which the English club says it is confident, as we explained to you on Thursday, and the already acquired arrival of young David Datro Fofana from Molde, the new owners are very ambitious. They want to make several changes to the team so that it moves up the rankings, which is currently 8th, and secures a place in the Champions League at the end of the season.
Weighty reinforcements are expected, especially in midfield where N’Golo Kanté has a string of physical glitches, and Jorginho is no longer quite convincing. Chelsea are aiming for neither more nor less than Enzo Fernandez. Great revelation of the World Cup with Argentina, the young Benfica player saw his rating soar in a few weeks. He has a departure clause of €120m, a very expensive cost, even for an English club.
Chelsea want a midfielder and a reinforcement up front
The Blues are not alone on this issue but inevitably, faced with such an amount, they also look at what is being done elsewhere. According to The Guardian, another world champion is courted, cheaper this one and who has the advantage of already knowing the Premier League. Alexis Mac Allister (24) would be a perfect alternative, he who is already followed by Arsenal, Tottenham and Atlético de Madrid, while he is still under contract until 2025 with Brighton.
Finally, Chelsea also intends to recruit in front, where Armando Broja was seriously injured and will no longer be available for the rest of the season. If Christopher Nkunku is going to land next season, as we can assure him, the trail leading to Ukrainian sensation Mykhailo Mudryk is still on. Problem this time, Arsenal took a step ahead by already making several proposals to Shakhtar Donetsk.
