Enzo Fernandez urges Paulo Dybala to come to Chelsea

Enzo Fernandez has called for his Argentina teammate Paulo Dybala to sever ties with Roma and join him at Chelsea.

Thiago Silva has recently revealed his idea of convincing La Joya to terminate his year-long stint at the Stadio Olimpico to help Mauricio Pochettino restore the London side to former glory.

After the veteran defender, the 22-year-old midfielder has become the latest Blues star to invite the ex-Juventus forward to end his long-term Serie A career and move to Stamford Bridge.

In an interview with Ole, Fernandez confessed he and Dybala spoke about a potential reunion in London after lifting the World Cup title with Argentina last December.

“I hope he comes,” he said. “I talked to him and told him that I’m waiting for him to share a barbecue or something. I need one to share the mates.”

Fernandez, who arrived from Benfica for a British-record transfer fee of £106.8 million on deadline day in January, was one of the few Chelsea players to impress last term.

The Argentine’s eye-catching showings during his first six months in the Premier League have earned him a safe place in the club’s new project.

Chelsea’s rebuild under Pochettino is well underway. Numerous underwhelming performers have already waved goodbye to the Bridge to make room for new arrivals.

The last player to join a substantial outgoing contingent was David Detro Fofana, who completed his loan move to Union Berlin on Tuesday.

Chelsea are still working on offloading Romelu Lukaku before they focus on acquiring more signings, having already snapped up Christopher Nkunku and Nicolas Jackson.

Despite landing two forwards, Pochettino is still not done revamping his attacking options, with the Blues thinking between Dybala and Juventus’ Dusan Vlahovic to put a cherry on the cake.

Dybala’s contract has a €12m release clause for non-Italian clubs, tempting Chelsea to make an approach.

However, the 29-year-old has quelled talks of his possible Roma exit, reiterating his wish to continue with Jose Mourinho’s side following a decent maiden season in Rome.
