Chelsea turn attentions to cheaper left back option

All the talk surrounding Chelsea and transfers right now seems to be all about who they will look to bring in at left back.

With the futures of both Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri up in the air, Chelsea have been linked largely to Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell, Porto’s Alex Telles, and Barcelona’s Marc Cucurella.

There is another name entered to frame today, a player who will reportedly be the cheaper option.

According to Calciomercato, Chelsea are looking at signing Ajax left back Nicolás Tagliafico.

The 27-year old Argentinian international has really made a name for himself since joining Ajax in 2018, and he is allegedly being considered by Chelsea as they look to sign a new left back in the summer.

He would have caught their eye during the two games Ajax played against Chelsea during this seasons Champions League Group stages.

Neither Alonso or Emerson have managed to really cement down a regular first team place under Frank Lampard, with the boss switching between the two often.
