Chelsea extend search to left-back – Footie Central
Chelsea have broadened their search for a new left-back following news that Ben Chilwell may need surgery that will keep him out for the remainder of the season.
A man who has been added to their potential roster of French international Theo Hernandez, who currently plays for AC Milan, although Serie A have indicated they will not listen to offers under $ 50million for the 24-year-old. .
This comes on top of Everton’s Lucas Digne, who is available after falling out with manager Ra Benitez at Goodison Park, and who is available for a transfer in January.
One problem they have in attracting quality candidates is who gets the left-back spot once Chigwell is back in good shape.
Marcos Alonso has supplied in Chilwell’s absence but is believed to lack the defensive strength to be the long-term solution to the problem.
