Chelsea chiefs watch January transfers in training… but no sign of Fernandez



CHELSEA owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali cast an eye over their new January signings in training – but there was no sign of Enzo Fernandez.

The World Cup winner became the last and most expensive signing of the Blues’ record-breaking January on deadline day.

He joins a host of new faces at Stamford Bridge who will be hoping to make an impact against Fulham tomorrow.

Boehly and Eghbali, the faces of the new ownership, arrived at Cobham to watch the players go through their paces.

Boehly wore a black jacket with grey trousers as he strode through the blustery training ground.


Alongside him pictured with a grin was Eghbali, who is believed to have been heavily involved with getting the Fernandez deal over the line.

Along with the new signings, veterans such as Thiago Silva were also seen in the middle of the busy session.

Encouragingly for Chelsea fans, the likes of Wesley Fofana, Ben Chilwell and Reece James were all visible as they continue their road back from injury.

At the centre of it all was Blues boss Graham Potter, who has seen pressure on his job ease recently after a couple of decent results in recent weeks.

The ex-Brighton manager has also seen over £300m of talent walk through the door, potentially giving his side boost.

Supporters have so far seen most of defender Benoit Badiashile, who appears to have struck up a solid partnership with Silva at the back.

Fans were given only a limited glimpse of Mykhailo Mudryk in the last league game at Anfield but many were impressed with what they saw.


David Datro Fofana has been largely limited to cameo appearances so far while right-back Malo Gusto was immediately sent back on loan to Lyon after his signing.

Loanee Joao Felix was dismissed on his debut while Andrey Santos, Noni Madueke and Fernandez are all waiting to make their first appearances.
