Todd Boehly, a co-owner of Chelsea, is personally leading the team's desperate effort to sign Enzo Fernandez from Benfica because he is concerned that rival clubs will make summer moves for the 2022 FIFA World Cup winner.
On Sunday, it was said that Chelsea had rekindled their interest in Fernandez and was putting together a fresh offer to make to Benfica.
The Blues were heavily linked with a move for the midfielder earlier in the transfer window, but negotiations stalled. Since Boehly took over at the west London club, the club has spent more than £400 million on new acquisitions.
Despite Chelsea's willingness to spend about 120 million euros and possibly include a player in the deal, Benfica was adamant that Fernandez was not for sale, and their position on the player has not changed.
Chelsea have not been put off by Benfica’s stance, however, and are ready to "go big" and pay "crazy money" to bring the 22-year-old to England, according to Fabrizio Romano.
It is claimed Boehly is heavily invested in the deal and is keen to be part of the negotiations, as he fears Chelsea will face more competition for the Argentina international if they wait until the summer.
