Fabrizio Romano confirms Chelsea closing in on LFC target & Reds lose lead on another midfielder

Posted by

Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Chelsea are approaching a ‘crucial week’ in the transfer market in their bid to close a deal for Benfica’s Argentine sensation Enzo Fernandez.

The Blues look set to land the reported Liverpool target (Melissa Reddy recently claimed that the 21-year-old is on a long list of midfielders the club likes) in the near future in what would represent a hugely impressive piece of business for Graham Potter’s men.

Things could get quickly worse for Jurgen Klopp’s men, however, if ESPN’s (as relayed by the Liverpool Echo) latest report on Jude Bellingham’s future is vaguely accurate.

Though it was understood that the Englishman had yet to select his next destination beyond the summer window, the publication now claims that Real Madrid have stolen a march on their European rivals and are ‘now the side most likely to strike a deal’.

Whilst there was always a possibility (‘possibility’ being the operative word) that we could pull off the near-unthinkable and snap up two of the World Cup’s most exciting midfield prodigies, one would have surely sufficed on their own.

The prospect of us now potentially signing neither is unthinkable given how much hope and effort has been poured into our ongoing pursuit of the Borussia Dortmund star ahead of the summer window.

It’s a report to take lightly for now, though we’d be ill-advised to simply rest on our laurels in the market.

  1. Bellingham has always said he wants to go to Real Madrid, so all this false and miss leading information about how close a deal is, is just utter nonsense sadly no one listens.
