Wolves to launch new transfer bid for Enzo Fernandez after Benfica pipped them to Argentine star this summer
WOLVES are dreaming of signing Benfica’s new Argentinian star Enzo Fernandez — at the second attempt.
The Premier League club tried and failed to land Fernandez when they were just too late to do a deal with River Plate at the start of the last window.
Wolves even sent one of their transfer teams to South America in a bid to land Fernandez in a key swoop, only to find out that the transfer was done.
Now the 21-year-old has gone to Benfica and is already involved in the Champions League, with Wolves watching him last week.
Wolves have strong ties and contacts in Portugal but Fernandez is NOT with their favoured Gestifute player agency camp.
So Wolves will have to work hard to land him either in the next window or — more likely — at the end of the season.
They are huge fans of Fernandez, who would add fresh legs and ideas to a midfield that will need to be revamped in time, with Joao Moutinho still key at 36.
Fernandez has played 11 times for Benfica this term.
The Argentine has three goals to his name with two of those coming in the Champions League qualifiers.
He also started and played a full 90 minutes in Benfica’s group stage opener.
Benfica beat Maccabi Haifa 2-0 with both goals coming in the second half.
Rafa Silva opened the scoring before left-back Alejandro Grimaldo scored one of the goals of the night from distance.
