Check out Fernandez's transfer situation below.

Midfielder Crisis

Chelsea is said to want to get the services of Fernandez. This is because the Blues will experience a midfield crisis in 2023.

Their two midfielders, Jorginho and N'Golo Kante, are out of contract. So far there is no sign of the two midfielders will extend his contract at Chelsea.

As a result the Blues need a new top midfielder to strengthen their team. The figure of Fernandez is considered suitable for their needs.

Beat Liverpool

Benfica reportedly priced the midfielder at a fairly high price. They want around 80 million Euros for the services of the midfielder.

Great Performance

This season, Fernandez is still a mainstay in the Benfica squad. The 21-year-old midfielder has made 18 appearances for Benfica's first team this season.

He also managed to make a big contribution, where he made a total of 3 goals and two assists for Las Aguilas.
