Chelsea Midfielder Enzo Fernandez Ruled Out for the Season Following Surgery

Chelsea midfielder Enzo Fernandez will play no further part in the remainder of the 2023-24 season after undergoing a successful surgery to address a groin issue. The 23-year-old Argentina international is set to miss the club’s remaining six Premier League games, but he aims to return in time for the Copa America, commencing on 20 June.

Fernandez, who joined Chelsea from Benfica for a British record £107m transfer fee during the 2023 winter transfer window, had been a key figure for the club this season. Despite the challenges faced by Chelsea throughout the campaign, Fernandez made 40 appearances, showcasing his talent with seven goals to his name.

The midfielder’s absence will undoubtedly be felt by Chelsea as they navigate the final stretch of the Premier League season, but the club will be hopeful for his swift recovery ahead of the Copa America. Fernandez’s notable contributions for both Chelsea and his national team highlight his importance on the field and his potential to make a significant impact upon his return.
