Fabrizio Romano has claimed on his YouTube channel there is silence surrounding the potential transfer of Enzo Fernandez to Chelsea, which is normally a positive sign.
The deal is likely to go down in history whatever happens, with negotiations and interest lasting for the entirety of January.
The Blues have met their match in negotiations. Club president Rui Costa has been unwilling to move on his valuation and payment terms.
It has been a rollercoaster of a month in the club’s quest to sign a midfielder, with them so far unsuccessful with a bid for Moises Caicedo.
This saw them prioritise Fernandez, with things going down to the wire on deadline day.
Positive Enzo Fernandez update
Romano has claimed with two hours left in the transfer window that there is still silence regarding the deal, although that could be a positive for the Blues.
He said: “Big silence on Enzo deal, that’s usually positive.”
Chelsea fans will be waiting patiently for the news on a deadline day which has revolved much more around players leaving the club.
Jorginho has been confirmed to have moved to Arsenal just months before his contract at Stamford Bridge was set to come to an end.
Omari Hutchinson is also set to be on the move, with him being loaned out to West Brom.
