Huge transfer fees are inevitable to reinforce defense.
“Chelsea is looking to recruit Antonio Silva (20, Benfica) to reinforce its defense next season,” the British newspaper “The Sun” reported on the 5th (Korea time).
Chelsea has shown disappointing performance this season. Having played 20 matches in the Premier League, Chelsea has won eight matches, drawn four and lost eight, earning only 28 points and ranking 10th.마카오토토주소
Defensive instability is pointed out as the biggest problem. Chelsea has allowed a whopping 31 runs in 20 league games. None of the top 10 teams have lost more runs than Chelsea.
Voices calling for the recruitment of a new center back are gaining weight. As key defender Thiago Silva (39) is highly likely to leave the team at the end of this season, recruitment of a successor is definitely necessary.
Antonio Silva has emerged as a strong candidate. According to the latest report, Chelsea is classifying Antonio Silva as one of the key players.
Antonio Silva is considered one of the center backs who is expected to grow in the future. Despite his young age, he proved his potential with his intelligent positioning and build-up skills.
He has already established himself as a key player at Benfica. He has played in 23 games in all competitions this season, and is considered an indispensable player in the defense of his team.
He is considered the future of the Portuguese national team. Silva, who joined the Portugal national team for the first time in 2022, also played full-time in the match against Liechtenstein last year.
Love calls are pouring in for outstanding performances. Not only Chelsea but also Manchester United, Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur are showing interest in recruiting Antonio Silva.
With high interest, the transfer fee is soaring. “In order to recruit Silva, it is expected that he will have to pay 100 million euros (about 140 billion won), which is equivalent to a buyout,” The Sun said.
