Chelsea will make a transfer swoop for some major reinforcement at the left-back from Bundesliga.
Chelsea currently sits fourth in the Premier League table but is well aware of the fall-off in various areas. One such area among them is the left-back position that has become troublesome. Currently the only League that has resumed playing football in the world is Bundesliga. Chelsea is determined to dig out some really worthy left-back and bring some major reinforcement at Stamford Bridge.
The Premier League fourth-placed club is reported to have sent their scouts on the potential left back that can solve the issue at Chelsea. Thus it is sure that Chelsea’s scout is working hard and are thoroughly studying the German League.
The Coronavirus outbreak has worsened the situation around the world and therefore football clubs are looking to spend on small signings. Earlier Chelsea was following Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell who also has a good amount of admirers at Stamford Bridge. But it doesn’t seem he would come at a cheaper amount. Hence Chelsea has diverted their interest and is trying to look afield.
Another left-back that captivated Chelsea’s interest is Bayern Munich’s Canadian international Alphonso Davies. Chelsea learned about the player’s explosive pace when they witnessed him featuring for the German side. He played an important role in a 3-0 triumph over Chelsea at Stamford bridge. But Chelsea lost the chance to grab his services after he signed a new deal with Bavarians till 2025. The young starlet has undoubtedly developed himself as the Bundesliga’s leading left-back and is also emerging is one of the best in Europe.
But, Chelsea is having a back of many other decent left-back presents in Bundesliga at a feasible transfer fee. Given below are the four names West Londoners might give a thought of signing in the coming window.
Raphael Guerreiro (Borussia Dortmund)
Guerreiro impressed again with his phenomenal performance winning with a 4-0 over local rival Schalke. The Bundesliga returned back to action and as stated by WhoScored.com Guerreiro became one of the best-rated footballers of the league.
But he is no sooner running out of his current deal and has 3 years. So this is clear Guerreiro won’t come for a small amount. Even if he has got the quality in him Frank Lampard is looking for.
However, the 26-year-old preferably play as a wing-back and would have trouble just like Chelsea’s Marcos Alonso. This has put the official in dilemma who aren’t sure of whether he’ll be comfortable at the back four the preferential position by Frank Lampard.
Achraf Hakimi (Borussia Dortmund)
Another player from Dortmund is Real Madrid loanee, Achraf Hakimi. The player can be deployed on both the flanks of defense and still do well. Real Madrid has shown no signs of incorporating the 21-year old in their future plans. Even if Real Madrid will sell him off, he would come with a friendly amount and could definitely proper under Frank Lampard.
Jonas Hector (Cologne)
This one has successfully landed himself as Joachim Loew’s first-choice left-back for the German national team. But nabbing him away wouldn’t be any easy. Hector stayed with his boyhood club even when they couldn’t make it to Bundesliga and thus proving his loyalty. The 29-year-old has not been in his best form and is more than capable to play a better football than he’s playing now. He’ll serve as an experienced left-back at Chelsea.
Ramy Bensebaini (Borussia Monchengladbach)
The 25-year-old versatile Algerian was known to many through the glorious 2-1 win against Bayern Munich. Ramy conceded both the goals back in December and currently having his first season at Borussia Monchengladbach. Last Saturday he successfully assisted Gladbach in a 3-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt.
