The Blues were the biggest spenders during the January transfer window, as Todd Boehly's consortium shelled out in excess of 300 million ponds including a British record deal for Enzo Fernandez. Graham Potter has bolstered his options with the arrival of 106.8 million pounds Fernandez from Benfica as well as Mykhailo Mudryk, who arrived for 88.5 million pounds from Shakhtar Donetsk, and Joao Felix among others. Silva believes the amount of money spent by Fulham's local rivals, ahead of the meeting between the two sides at Stamford Bridge on Friday, is not a new phenomenon.
The deadline-day arrival of Enzo Fernandez took the club’s intake during the transfer window to eight.
The 31-year-old was hurt in last weekend’s FA Cup fourth-round win.
