The proximity of Fernandez’s impending move to Liverpool, according to Benfica sources

2 mins read

Enzo Fernandez, a midfielder for Benfica, is still a target for Liverpool, according to sources at the Portuguese club.

Although Fernandez began the World Cup with Argentina on the bench, he has worked his way into the starting XI and put on a string of strong performances. Fernandez is presently competing for Argentina at the World Cup in Qatar.

As Argentina and France square off in the championship game on Sunday, he will now compete in that match.

Fernandez has been a standout for Benfica so far this season, and the competition has only served to enhance his increasing reputation in the football world.

He only joined the team in the summer after leaving Argentine powerhouse River Plate, but it looks like he may already be on the move.

That is due to a “pre-agreement” that Liverpool and the player have reportedly reached over a transfer to Anfield, according to Portuguese news outlet Record.

The Reds’ potential transfer has now been made public by Benfica.

Benfica sends out Enzo Fernandez The Portuguese powerhouses, according to the Liverpool update 90min, won’t sell Fernandez unless potential buyers pay the €120 million release clause in his Benfica contract.

That would deter some teams, and if Liverpool were to spend that much money on a player, it would shatter their previous transfer record.

However, sources have also told the same newspaper that any discussion of a deal with the Reds for Fernandez’s signing is “premature” and that the Portuguese club is not aware of any such deal.

Additionally, it is asserted that Liverpool’s interest in the midfielder is currently just a registered one.

However, this transaction might not be finalised until the World Cup is over because Fernandez is now devoted to it.

Until December 30, when they play Braga, Benfica is not scheduled to return to league play. Of course, the January transfer market begins two days later, so if the Reds can complete a trade fast, Fernandez may have played his final match wearing a Benfica jersey.
