Enzo Fernandez to Chelsea is now pushing forward into the advance stages, MySportDab reports.
The Premier League side are working towards making a move happen ahead of the January window which is just few days away.
Chelsea have been working all through after advancing over other possible suitors to go after the Argentina midfielder.
There has been so major moves already and as it seems now, the London club are edging closer to an agreement.
Liverpool, Real Madrid and other top teams were said to be interested in making a move happen earlier.
All interested parties were put away by the release clause which Benfica want to make sure they get all before allowing a move happen.
Chelsea have since jumped on the opportunity of signing the player as they are willing to trigger the release clause for the player.
Benfica has also confirmed the talks that are going on concerning a move and they are already looking at the possibility of letting the player leave.
Enzo Fernandez’s contract with Benfica comes to an end in 2027 which is still a long way and that is more reason why he comes with a huge fee which was also triggered after the World Cup.
