On transfer deadline day, it was a day of drama at Stamford Bridge, as Chelsea were extremely busy for new arrivals and departures, culminating in the arrival of number one midfield target Enzo Fernandez on a British transfer record.

Not only Fernandez, but also Southampton forward Jimmy-Jay Morgan, joined the London club in the final hours. According to Felix Johnston on Twitter, the highly rated forward moved to Cobham after rejecting a professional contract at St Mary’s Park. He was linked to Arsenal, Leeds United, and Manchester City last week, while the Saints were also unwilling to let him leave for free.

The stance shifted following Chelsea’s approach, which resulted in Southampton receiving a sizable compensation fee for Morgan’s departure. Since his debut last year, he has appeared in 29 games for their development squad, scoring 12 goals and registering ten assists.
