[스포티비뉴스=장승하·장하준 영상기자]Enzo Fernandez has written history in the Premier League transfer market.
On the 1st, Chelsea announced the signing of midfielder Enzo from Benfica through their official website. The transfer fee for Enzo, who is also a key player in Argentina’s World Cup victory in Qatar, is 120 million euros, or about 160 billion won in Korean currency.
This astronomical sum has achieved the highest ever transfer fee in the Premier League. It was more than Jack Grealish’s €117 million, who had previously come first.
Chelsea literally went scouting up a storm in the transfer market this winter. Chelsea immediately recruited players like Enzo, Mihailo Mudrik, and Joao Felix, and spared no investment for the future, such as Dartro Popana.
The transfer market is closed, and the amount spent by Chelsea alone in the winter was close to 500 billion won.
Chelsea, who have been sluggish this season and are currently in 10th place in the league. Attention is focused on whether he will be able to bounce back successfully with Winter Storm’s recruitment.
Meanwhile, Benfica, who recruited Enzo for about 13 billion won last summer, sold Enzo for 160 billion won in just half a year, showing the face of a giant.
