Chelsea to Pursue New Left-Back With Marcos Alonso & Emerson Not in Long-Term Plans

Exclusive: Chelsea have decided that they need a new left-back, with neither Marcos Alonso or Emerson Palmieri in their long-term plans.

The Blues have successfully promoted a host of their youth players to the first team this season under their transfer ban, but they don’t have a left-sided player ready to step up at the moment.

As a result, 90min understands Chelsea have informed their scouts to start looking at left-backs from across the world.

Among their options is Leicester man Ben Chilwell, although the Foxes are ready to offer the England man a new long-term contract.
