Chelsea are reportedly closing in on three signings as they make significant progress on the details of the fee for Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernandez.
As well as a deal for Fernandez, the Evening Standard claim the Blues are also close to wrapping up the signings of young French defender Benoit Badiashile and Brazilian midfield wonderkid Andrey Santos.
Evening Standard journalist Nizaar Kinsella adds in his tweet below that Chelsea are closer to agreeing a fee with Benfica for Fernandez, though it will involve paying the Argentina international’s hefty transfer fee over a few years in order to stay in line with Financial Fair Play regulations.
