According to The Telegraph, Chelsea are interested in signing Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico.

The English club are looking for a new left-back this summer, and it appeared Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell was their primary target. However, he would cost Chelsea around £40 million.

Chelsea are also considering Tagliafico, who is the cheaper option, with The Telegraph reporting that he would cost £22.4 million. The only thing standing in the way of a bid is the go ahead from Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.

The head coach was a big fan of Hakim Ziyech and approved that move, but its unclear whether he will back a bid for Tagliafico.

The Argentinian has made it clear that he wants to leave Ajax this summer for a move to a stronger league. Arsenal, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and PSG have all been linked with a move for the 27-year-old.
