​Chelsea reassess left-back plans after Ajax make Tagliafico available

Chelsea could be ready to finalise their plans for a summer left back signing.

The Blues have been on the hunt for a defender on that flank since manager Frank Lampard was unimpressed with Emerson Palmieri this season.

Leicester's Ben Chilwell and Porto star Alex Telles have both been linked with the Stamford Bridge club.

And Mundo Deportivoreports that Ajax have made Tagliafico available for €25 million this summer.

The Argentine was part of the team that reached the Champions League semi finals last season.

He has a contract until summer 2022, and had an impressive season this time around.

Tagliafico managed five goals and seven assists in 36 games in all competitions for the Dutch giants.
