River Plate star Enzo Fernandez has star potential at Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur amid reported interest from the Premier League duo, says former Albiceleste international Dario Felman Tribal football.
The newly crowned Argentine champion has lost a key player to an English giant since the start of the year. Manchester City completed the signing of prolific Julian Alvarez in January.
Enzo Fernandez may soon follow in Alvarez’s footsteps.
According to South American Publications El Crack Deportivo, The midfielder with good mobility is a target not only for Arsenal and Spurs but also for Everton, West Ham United and Aston Villa.
And with good reason.
Fernandez already looks like a central midfielder with lots of ropes to keep his head down. A ball carrier and a ball winner roll as one. Coco Basile, a two-time Copa America champion, even described Fernandez, 21, as the ‘best’ footballer currently plying his trade in Argentina.
And that includes Julian Alvarez.
Is Enzo Fernandez coming to the Premier League?
“Enzo Fernandez will come from a period at River Plate where they won everything,” explains Felman. “When you have a good team it also means you have some good individuals.
“Fernandez has the technical ability but what he needs is to learn more about collective sacrifice, which he will find in European football. Once he has learned to combine the two, he can play for any team in Europe, like Arsenal and Tottenham.
“He’s really good, in terms of potential.”
Ready for Real Madrid?
Diego Lemme, president of Fernandez’s former owners, Defensa y Justicia, believes that the River Plate enforcer could one day dress him in the iconic Real Madrid white shirt (Ole).
However, Felman insists Fernandez still has a long way to go on his football development journey.
“I don’t really see Enzo Fernández playing for Real Madrid,” added Felman. “They are on another level. One team is looking for complete players like (Kylian) Mbappe and (Erling) Haaland.
“I see Enzo Fernandez as more likely to play in the Premier League.”
