Enso Fernandez, who currently boasts the highest ransom in the Premier League, has entered London.
Enso confirmed his transfer to Chelsea one hour before the transfer window deadline on the 1st (Korean time).
His contract period is 8 and a half years until the summer of 2031, and the transfer fee is 121 million euros (approximately 162.2 billion won), breaking the highest transfer fee in the Premier League.
Enso moved to Benfica from his home country Argentina last summer and has been reborn as the highest paid Premier League player in just half a year since entering the European stage.
As a defensive midfielder, he appeared in 17 Portuguese Liga games this season, recording one goal and five assists, showing his talent for advancement. He also scored 2 goals in 4 matches in the UEFA (European Football Confederation) Champions League qualifiers.
It was thanks to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar that Enso received more attention. His star-studded performance in the World Cup, his first for Argentina, has skyrocketed his ransom. He lifted the World Cup trophy with Lionel Messi and also won the tournament’s Young Player Award. 스포츠토토

I want to quickly help my teammates and play in front of the fans.”
