Chelsea manager Graham Potter explains steps he has had to take to welcome the ‘impressive’ Enzo Fernandez

Chelsea manager Graham Potter is already getting on well with new signing - and is looking forward to more.

Chelsea manager Graham  Potter has admitted he is looking forward to working with the “impressive” Enzo Fernandez.

The Chelsea manager gave his blessing for the club to make the Argentine World Cup winner the club’s most expensive signing, smashing the British transfer record with a £107 million.

The player is in line to make his debut against Fulham even though his manager has admitted there is some final paperwork that needs to be cleared ahead of the game.

Enzo Fernandez is the latest in a line of players Benfica have sold to Chelsea.

The young midfielder, who was the best Young Player at the World Cup in Qatar, barely speaks English so his manager Graham Potter admits he needs an interpreter to get his messages across.

He told reporters ahead of the game against Fulham: “We’ll see. We’ve got to go through the paperwork and he needs to get clearance and all that.

“I’ve spoken to him. My Spanish isn’t great and his English isn’t great, so we needed a translator, but we’ll get there. He is an impressive young man and I’m really excited to work with him.”

The game at Stamford Bridge is the reverse of the thrilling encounter that saw Joao Felix sent off on his debut and Chelsea losing 2-1.

Since then, Chelsea have signed both Mykhailo Mudryk and Enzo Fernandez so fans will expect their club to get the three points and the season back on track.
