Premier League trio Chelsea, Spurs and Everton are all fighting for the signature of a Spartak Moscow star this summer, a report claims.
According to The Sun, Brazilian midfielder Fernando is attracting interest from the aforementioned English trio ahead of a possible move in the upcoming transfer window.
Spartak could still win the Russian Premier League title, but the report claims that they have already given up hope of keeping the 26-year-old.
There is also interest arriving from Spain, with both Sevilla and Atletico Madrid keen on the former Sampdoria man.
The club apparently value Fernando at around £22m, but will be hoping to get even more if they can somehow spark a bidding war between suitors.
It is believes that Chelsea are on the lookout for a replacement for Danny Drinkwater, who has failed to make an impact since his arrival from Leicester and has been linked with a move to West Ham in Wednesday’s papers.
