Chelsea want to sign a new left-sided defender with manager Frank Lampard not convinced with the quality of current options Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri.
Neither Marcos Alonso or Emerson Palmieri has been able to nail down the first-choice role at left-back and Frank Lampard has rotated them this season.
With this in mind, Chelsea are in the market for a new and quality left-back.
Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell, Juventus star Alex Sandra and many more have been linked with the Blues as far as the problematic left-back role is concerned.

The new name in the media is Alex Telles of FC Porto whom Chelsea will need to pay the full release clause in his contract with the former Portuguese champions before they can secure his signature.
It was started by Portuguese newspaper A Bola that Brazilian defender Alex Telles has a £40m release clause in his FC Porto and his club is not willing to negotiate a lower fee for him.
The ball is in Chelsea’s court right now as they have been informed about what it would take to sign their transfer target.
Chelsea will miss out on Borussia Dortmund player Jadon Sancho as they have been priced out of a transfer that would cost €170m.
