Enzo Fernandez Transfer News & Odds

Enzo Fernandez Transfer News & Odds

Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernandez will be a player that will be persistently mentioned by many big clubs in the January transfer window following some excellent displays for Argentina at the 2022 World Cup.

The 21-year-old really broke onto world stage international-wise when he scored a stunning goal in Argentina’s 2-0 group stage win over Mexico - a crucial match that helped settle Lionel Scaloni’s side down after their shock 2-1 loss to Saudi Arabia in their opening match.

Fernandez himself only joined Benfica last summer despite interest from Premier League clubs such as Manchester United, as the Primeira Liga outfit agreed on a deal with Argentinian giants River Plate which saw an exchange of €10m plus €6m in add-ons - this fee looks incredibly astute when looking at rumoured fees for the player following Qatar 2022.

It has been mentioned that Fernandez has a £120m release clause in his contract at Benfica, Whether that will be triggered is a different question. The Portuguese outfit are certainly in a very strong position to negotiate a big transfer fee.

Club Latest Odds
Liverpool 5/1
Manchester City 7/1
Arsenal 9/1
Manchester United 9/1

Liverpool Odds: 5/1

Liverpool are the bookmakers’ favourite to sign Fernandez, with reports from several media outlets suggesting that the Reds could trigger the Argentine’s release clause due to their need to improve across their midfield.

So far this campaign, Jurgen Klopp’s side have struggled in midfield, as Liverpool have struggled to deploy their gegenpress strategy to full effect, with ageing midfield duo Jordan Henderson and James Milner starting regularly, while Thiago Alcantara has missed several matches due to various injuries.

With Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain looking likely to leave the Anfield club at the end of the current campaign, there is a chance that Fernandez could be brought in early to help the Reds in their pursuit for Champions League football.

Manchester City Odds: 7/1

Manchester City have also been linked with Fernandez, with the Argentinian notably being a teammate of Julian Alvarez while at River Plate last season.

Pep Guardiola will want to add to his side in order to maintain the Cityzens’ world-class levels, as they are a team that tends to compete for every competition that they enter.

With the likes of Ilkay Gundogan being 32 years of age and rumoured to be looking for a move away at the end of the season, on top of the fact that summer signing Kalvin Phillips has struggled with injuries in his first half a season at the Etihad Stadium, there is a chance that City could invest in a new midfielder as they are one of the most shrewd operators in world football.

City are priced at 7/1 to sign Fernandez in the January transfer window.

Arsenal Odds: 9/1

Premier League leaders Arsenal could look to splash the cash in January, with Mikel Arteta’s men looking to fend off competition from the likes of Manchester City.

The Gunners are having their best league campaign since 2003/04 and will be keen to maintain their position at the top of the table, so could look to reinforce their squad in a last-ditch attempt to see them get over the line for what looked like an unlikely Premier League title charge at the start of the season.

Arsenal midfield duo Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey are 30 and 29 years of age and are integral to how the Gunners play. The signing of Fernandez would ultimately allow Arteta to rotate the duo while adding quality to Arsenal’s squad.

Fernandez is priced at 9/1 to make the switch from River Plate to Arsenal.

Manchester United Odds: 9/1

Manchester United are another side that could do with investing in their midfield options, as Erik ten Hag looks to improve the quality in his squad once more.

Rumours have suggested that Donny van de Beek could be on his way out of Old Trafford, while Brazilian midfielder, Fred, doesn’t have a contract at United past the current campaign unless his trigger clause is activated.

Ten Hag is said to be looking at possibilities to improve United’s midfield, as there is a fairly big drop-off in quality behind the Red Devils' starting trio of Casemiro, Christian Eriksen and Bruno Fernandes - could Fernandez be the answer that the Old Trafford club are looking for?

United were heavily linked with a move for Fernandez prior to his move to Benfica and are priced at 9/1 to sign the Argentinian in the January transfer window.
