Chelsea join Spurs interest for Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico

Chelsea have added Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico to their shopping list.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard wants a new left-back signing for next season and is casting a wide net.

While Ben Chilwell is the priority, Leicester City's £80m asking price is proving a stumbling block.

Instead, Chelsea are considering alternatives - which include Tagliafico.

The Argentina international, 27, is also on Tottenham's radar and has a contract with Ajax to 2022.
