According to English media, Enzo Fernandez is considering leaving Chelsea, after only 1 year at Stamford Bridge. The player's agents, including his long-time representative Uriel Perez, are exploring the various options available to the Argentine midfielder at the moment.
Fernandez joined Chelsea for the stratospheric figure of 121 million euros, but the Argentine has failed to make the impact expected of him at Stamford Bridge. At the moment it is not yet clear whether it is Fernandez himself or his agents who are trying to get the player away from Chelsea, but the move will not be easy at all. Especially considering the midfielder's current contract runs until 2032.
Fernandez was hailed as a complete midfielder before his move to Chelsea, but the Argentine has failed to contribute to help the Blues achieve their goals. Since arriving at Stamford Bridge, Fernandez has scored only 5 goals and provided only 3 assists in a total of 49 matches. The World Cup winner with Argentina joined Chelsea from Portuguese side Benfica, and the difficult situation the London Blues are going through has made it even more difficult for him to adapt to football and the high level of the Premier League.
Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino recently commented on the struggles Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo have faced in midfield this season, as the pair have failed to be effective in creating scoring chances. The Argentinian technician said:
"Caicedo played one season at Brighton, while Enzo was at Benfica before arriving in the Premier League. Their relationship should certainly improve, between them and individually. They are young and the expectations are quite high when you come here. But they are not the icing on the cake... When you come to a team that is in a building process and you are young with not much experience, even if you have good qualities, and people can see that the club paid a lot of money for you, they they expect you to perform, but that's not the case in football. Some people think that way because they don't know anything about football."
