Chelsea have been heavily linked with move for Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernandez, who was part of the Argentina team that won the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

Chelsea boss Graham Potter refused the give an update on the club’s pursuit of Fernandez, insisting that January was always a difficult market in which to find solutions.

Although Potter insisted he and the club would do everything to improve the squad.

“The problem is that if I answer it and I’m specific with the answer then every single player in that area will be linked with Chelsea so I have to dodge it,” Potter said.

“I’m the head coach so my responsibility is to the players that are here and then we’ll try to improve in every window.

“January is a complicated one because it’s the middle of the season and in the meantime we have to deal with all the noise of Chelsea being linked with everybody.

“I won’t comment on anyone who isn’t a Chelsea player but always my job is to help the players that are here and then support the club in terms of decisions they make in trying to improve.”
