Ed2 info on the below

Nicolas Tagliafico (LWB) the agreement is he will be made available this summer - first choice for Barcelona but money may be an issue - and priorities are an issue for Inter who have preferred options - far from first choice for Chelsea but on a lengthy list of LBs but the club has considered - although interestingly Ajax will be taking a LB from Chelsea this summer. Atletico Madrid has also taken a look at him but would need cash from sales to make any move - and they will prioritise others. PSG has an interest if they cannot get the player they want as part of a complex transaction where they would buy and then sell on a player. The issue with PSG is they have Bernat and too a youngster, Mitchel Bakker, from Ajax last year and he will step up. So PSG is unlikely.

It's a shame Ed won't discuss defenders with us as if Tagliafico is far from our first choice, I'd love to know who's higher on the list.

I'm not great at finding posts on this site so can only assume Chilwell is higher up, but who else is a mystery to me!

Telles has been mentioned. Since Ed’s post, Ajax have seemingly decided against picking up their purchase option on Castillo not that it would matter that much.

Telles was on the list a while ago quite rightly in my opinion.

Some LB options other than Tagliafico:
* Ben Chilwell
* Theo Hernandez
* Alex Telles
* Grimaldo
* M. Cucurella
* Robin Gosens
* Alaba etc.
Who would you like from the above list (Tagliafico included) if you were given the choice to pick one?

Yeh it makes sense as to why chelsea haven't completed the signing given that he is far from first choice.

I wonder who Ajax will be taking this summer?

28 Jul 2020 20:01:32
Alaba would be my first choice followed by Hernandez and Grimaldo 3rd.

Hernandez looks fantastic from what I’ve seen. Has everything to become one of the best. Not available according to ed002 though.

28 Jul 2020 21:20:29
Theo Hernandez is actually my first pick.

28 Jul 2020 21:28:38
I would rather pay ~50m+ for Theo Hernandez than pay same amount for Ben Chilwell.

I think it depends on what system Frank wants to utilize in relation to his fullbacks. If he wants wingbacks in style that continually overlap their winger like City uses or more of a traditional fullback. Of that group I like Hernandez’s combination of size, athleticism, and youth the most.

Just saw that Ed002 stated that Gosens was “way down the list for Chelsea” on the European page for what it’s worth.
