Transfer expert gives latest update on Chelsea’s pursuit of Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has claimed Chelsea have not contacted Benfica directly over signing Enzo Fernandez despite various reports claiming otherwise.

The Blues still remain interested in signing Fernandez despite having a bid rejected by Benfica earlier this month.

“At the moment, what I’m told is that Benfica are still on the same position: €120m or nothing. Let’s see if Chelsea will try again, there are no direct negotiations yet,” Romano told CaughtOffside.

Romano also revealed Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo has changed agents amid interest from Chelsea.

“Moises Caicedo remains in the list, there are also other players; no decision made yet,” Romano added.

“Caicedo has new agents now and so Arsenal and Liverpool are also informed on the situation, of course Chelsea have been pushing for weeks and so they remain keen on signing Caicedo. The big issue is Brighton; they want to keep the player.”
