According to Sky Sports, Chelsea have made an offer for Benfica midfielder Gedson Fernandes.

Chelsea’s offer is believed to be an 18-month loan with an obligation to buy for £55 million and it is dependent on the Portugal international midfielder playing at least 50 per cent of games during his loan spell at Stamford Bridge.

West Ham are also interested in signing the 20 year old and their offer is believed to be an 18-month loan with an obligation to buy for £33 million.

However, West Ham’s percentage of games that would trigger the sale is less than Chelsea’s and the final decision on where the 20-year-old will end up rests with Benfica and the player himself, according to Sky Sports.
