Ben Chilwell will be a great signing for Chelsea and supplant Marcos Alonso in the left-back position, former Blues defender Glen Johnson claims

Emerson Palmieri made a strong start to the campaign, but has been dealt with several injury problems and we have had to turn to Marcos Alonso, who you feel is not a particular favourite of Lampard’s.

And as we said, Chilwell has enhanced his reputation this season with a series of impressive displays for title-chasing Leicester and is one of the best full-backs in the top flight, meaning that he is top of the Chelsea shopping list in the summer.

And amid all the speculation, Chilwell will be a great signing for Chelsea and supplant Alonso in the left-back position, Johnson has told TalkSport

“I’ve said many times I am a fan of Chilwell,” Johnson said. “I like the way he carries himself.”

“You don’t really hear him unless it’s football related which I like, and I think he’s the sort of player Lamps [Lampard] would connect with.

“He’s the sort of out-and-out left-back they haven’t had for a while.

“I know Ashley Cole was irreplaceable, but in terms of a natural, solid left-back, they haven’t had one for a while and I think he’ll do very well.”

“Alonso is a fantastic player,” he added. “But I don’t think he’s a solid natural left-back.

“There’s no doubt he is a wonderful footballer but Chilwell is a natural full-back.

“It’s a hefty price tag, there’s no doubting that, but if [Chelsea] can get a deal for him that is reasonable then he’s a player they should try to get.”

We will see whether he is a good signing by the club when the deal is officially signed wont we?
