Yesterday cmjornal.com reported that Chelsea have sent representatives to Lisbon to negotiate a deal for Enzo Fernandez.
Record in Portugal have now also confirmed that Chelsea have entered the race for the World Cup Winner.
The publication states that the London side are willing to spend €130M on Fernandez.
Record report that Chelsea put a proposal together before Christmas.
With Real Madrid, Manchester United, Liverpool, and now Chelsea linked, the race is hotting up for the Argentinian star.
Benfica President Rui Costa does not want to sell Fernandez and had a face to face meeting with him yesterday in an effort to convince him to stay past the winter window according to the publication. As a former midfield player who was a legend for both club and country, Rui Costa knows the value of a top player in the middle of the park and seems desperate to keep Fernandez at the club.
Whether that meeting was enough to convince Fernandez to stay with Benfica until the end of the season remains to be seen.
