Enzo Fernandez is loving life at Chelsea since his club and British record transfer to Stamford Bridge last month.

The 22-year-old was acquired from Benfica on deadline day to conclude Chelsea’s January business which saw them spend in excess of £300 million on eight new signings.

Fernandez has come to England with a £106.8 million price-tag and impressed in his first four appearances for the club under Graham Potter, although Chelsea are yet to win since he arrived (D2, L2).

His stock this season has risen after winning the World Cup with Argentina in December, a moment he will never forget.

Despite only joining Benfica last summer and staying for just six months, Fernandez has already achieved his dream of playing in the Premier League.

After having three weeks to settle into his new surroundings, the Argentine has opened up on his time at Chelsea so far, expressing how happy he is with the club, staff and his new teammates.

Fernandez has also made a promise to do his upmost to achieve great things after signing a deal until June 2031 at Stamford Bridge.

“I’ve always longed to play in the Premier League,” he told the official Chelsea website.

“Chelsea FC has given me the opportunity to play here, and I feel grateful for their trust. I love everything about the club, I’m so happy with my teammates and technical staff. Honestly, ever since I landed here I felt at home. I’ll always try to give it my all along with my team-mates to achieve the greatest things for Chelsea.

“The World Cup is like reaching the sky! For me, that’s the everlasting glory. But one needs to keep the focus and self-belief.

“I’ll always try to have confidence in us, to win everything possible and keep evolving as a player. Clinching titles is the main objective, as well as enjoying football.”
