Chelsea ‘are interested in signing Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico’ as Frank Lampard seeks to bolster his defensive options.
With the Blues struggling to reach a deal with Leicester City for Ben Chilwell, with the two clubs some way apart on a transfer fee, Tagliafico has emerged as an alternative.
The Argentina international, 27, scored five goals and supplied five assists for Ajax last season.
And, according to Sky Sports, he could follow Hakim Ziyech in moving from Amsterdam to Stamford Bridge this summer.
Tagliafico, capped 25 times for his country, arrived at Ajax in 2018 from Independiente.
He has since emerged as one of Europe’s most sought-after left-backs with his Ajax contract set to expire in 2022.
Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have also been linked with the Argentine.
