With Marcos Alonso set to move to the Serie A in January and Emerson expected to play a bit-part role for Chelsea in the second half of the season, here are five left-backs the Blues could sign to help them secure a top four finish;
Juventus left-back Alex Sandro has been on Chelsea’s radar for the past few seasons but a move just hasn’t been able to work itself out for one reason or another.
Considering Chelsea’s left-back situation, Frank Lampard could make an attempt to sign the Brazilian in January.
Now 28-years-old and slowly moving out of his prime years, Chelsea might be able to secure his services for a reasonable fee if they make a move for him in January.
Sandro boasts incredible tactical awareness, pace and defensive ability – he’d be an excellent addition to Chelsea’s lineup.
