Liverpool lead Chelsea in the Enzo Fernandez transfer news, however Man Utd odds are drifting and City and Arsenal are also in the mix.
According to bookmakers Sky Bet, Jurgen Klopp’s team is the favorite to sign him out of a group of five Premier League teams.
Fernandez played every second of their remarkable knockout run after beginning the campaign as a minor player.
Before the 21-year-old midfielder won the Young Player of the World Cup in Qatar this winter, the Anfield team already admired him.
As a result, his reputation has greatly increased, and he is currently one of football’s most in-demand players.
Given that his contract still has more than four years left on it, current employers Benfica are reportedly not in a hurry to sell and are holding out for his exceptional £105 million buy out clause.
The Premier League clubs would be compelled to break the existing £100 million transfer record as a result.
In addition to being in line to recruit fellow World Cup starlet Cody Gakpo, Liverpool is the 2/1 favorite to sign Fernandez according to Sky Bet.

According to rumours from earlier this month, Manchester United is 13/2 and would be willing to meet the player’s buy out clause.
Erik ten Hag has options in midfield, but the addition of Fernandez would add another aspect as they strive to finish in the top four.
Manchester City is among the favorites to sign Jude Bellingham and is also rumored to be looking for midfield reinforcements.
They have an 18/1 chance of focusing on the Argentine instead.
At 25/1, Arsenal is the long shot among the group.
