According to reports, the £87 million star is nearing an agreement with Liverpool
For quite some time, Liverpool has been closely linked with Argentine international Enzo Fernandez, and the newest news following the World Cup has been extremely good.
According to recent rumours (press image provided below), Enzo is ready to consent to a move to Anfield.
O Dia claimed two days ago (through Argentine publication La Capital) that the young central midfielder, who is valued at roughly £87 million (100 million euros), had already agreed to join the Reds.
On the other hand, O Jogo, a Portuguese source, stated yesterday that big European teams are interested in the Benfica player, but his priority is to join Liverpool.
According to the renowned media site, the La Albiceleste midfielder’s agent and the Merseysiders have reached an agreement that has made them the favorite to sign him.
According to O Jogo, Liverpool will have to activate a 120 million euro release clause in order to sign Enzo Fernandez from the Eagles in the January transfer window.
The 21-year-old scored a goal and assisted on Argentina’s World Cup-winning team. He was named the Tournament’s Young Player.
Since joining Benfica last summer, the former River Plate midfielder has contributed directly to eight goals in over 20 games.
Enzo can play anywhere in the center of the field, although his natural position is as a creative midfielder.
The Reds sorely need to upgrade their aging midfield, and luring the much-wanted World champion away from the Liga Nos giants would be a significant coup.
We’ll see how the transfer saga plays out in the following weeks.
