Fabrizio Romano’s transfer update confirms LFC could still pull off dream double midfield signing

Posted by

Chelsea have yet to finalise an agreement with Benfica for the signing of Liverpool-linked Enzo Fernandez.

This update comes courtesy of a tweet from the reliable Fabrizio Romano amid reports that the Reds remain fully in contention for the signing of Jude Bellingham in the summer.

Sam Wallace noted for The Telegraph that, despite possessing less financial firepower in the market compared to the likes of Manchester City and Real Madrid, the Englishman’s ‘career decisions thus far have never prioritised money’, which could be a seismic difference-maker in the Reds’ quest to add genuine quality to their midfield ranks.

Admittedly, it’s still early days in the January transfer window and it’s one agreement we expect our league rivals to secure by the end of the month.

Still, if there’s even a slight chance that the Argentine sensation is still available in the summer, it does raise questions about how Liverpool might choose to act at the end of the season.

Judging by our approach to the current window and Jurgen Klopp’s admission that there’s only spare change left for us to act in January, it’s possible the remainder of our kitty has been put aside ahead of our move for Bellingham down the line.

Theoretically, it may be possible to negotiate a cheaper asking price for Fernandez in the next window (a possibility Benfica will certainly be far more open to), which could have fans dreaming of a dream transfer window where we snap up two of the most exciting midfield talents in world football.

One of the pair would most certainly suffice on their own, of course.
