Chelsea have reportedly shown interest in Barcelona left-back Joldi Alba in the summer.
The Blues had a season to forget last term and they are hoping to get quality players in the summer transfer window so as to perform brilliantly in the upcoming season.
According to The Sport, the Blues are eyeing a possible move to capture the Spaniard’s signature from the Camp Nou outfits before the start of next season.
The £54m-rated defender is one of the best defenders in the world and he was ever present in Valverde’s starting lineup during last season.
His desire and pace to join the team in the final half of the pitch while attacking is one trait that makes him different from other defenders in the world.
Playing regularly for Barcelona sums up his qualities and he would surely be a great addition to the Blues.
With Marcos Alonso being linked with a move to the Blaugrana this summer, Chelsea might easily be involved in a swap deal which will see Alba switch to Stamford Bridge while Alonso moves to the opposite side.
Should the Spaniard joins Chelsea in the summer, he would further push Emerson Palmieri down the pecking order and that could lead to a premature end to his Chelsea career.
