Chelsea drawing up new contract for Azpilicueta 'as priority'

Chelsea are preparing a new contract offer for captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

AS says Chelsea are readying a new contract for Azpilicueta as a matter of priority.

Azpilicueta - who has one year remaining on his current deal - has been one of the first names on the team sheet since Thomas Tuchel's January appointment.

And even though the Spain international turns 32 this summer, Chelsea chiefs are desperate to hand him a new contract.

The report adds Azpilicueta's leadership and experience make him an 'essential' figure for Chelsea on and off the pitch.
