Chelsea are now fully focused on signing Enzo Fernandez and have now dropped interest in signing Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

The Blues are back in talks to try to bring Fernandez to Stamford Bridge after failing to agree a deal with Benfica earlier this January and having a £55million bid for Caicedo rejected.

Fernandez played a key role for Argentina as they won the World Cup in Qatar and he was named Best Young Player of the World Cup.

“Chelsea are fully focused on Enzo now, not on Caicedo after £55m bid turned down ten days ago,” Romano told CaughtOffside.

“Chelsea and Benfica are speaking again now for Enzo Fernandez, Chelsea are prepared to pay €120m fee but final decision is up to Rui Costa who insists to keep the player.

“Chelsea will push in the next hours, again and again.”
