Chelsea Zero down on Cheaper Option to Ben Chilwell

It is no secret that Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been eyeing a left back when the transfer window opens, as he is not completely convinced with his current options – Marcos Alonso and Emerson. Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell is seen as the first choice target for the Blues, but the Foxes have placed a huge valuation on the player. The 23-year-old England international will have an inflated pricetag just like any other compatriot. This could force the blues into looking elsewhere for alternatives and a much cheaper option would be Ajax’s Nicolas Tagliafico.

Nicolas Tagliafico has been tuning in with some impressive performances for the Dutch outfit, but he has already stated his desire to leave the club. At 27, Tagliafico is keen on making the most of his last big move. His age and inability to qualify for the homegrown players rule will help in the transfer fees quite substantially. However, Chelsea will have to face competition from Atletico Madrid and Arsenal. Both clubs will offer tempting alternatives for the player, but Chelsea are moving swiftly, according to reports from TeamTalk, to secure a deal as soon as possible.

Emerson recently admitted that he would be open to the possibility of returning to the Italian Serie A.
