Chelsea transfer news: Cole orders Lampard to sign this £70 million Blues fan!
Ashley Cole has urged Chelsea to make a move for Ben Chilwell after finding out he is a Blues fan.
After months and months of fighting their transfer ban, Frank Lampard managed to get an early Christmas Present this month after it was revealed that the ban had been lifted, and we were able to sign players again in the January window, but no moves could be made.
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.
Cesar Azpilicueta has played in that position, despite being a right-back, while Reece James has also done a job on the left, so we will need to delve into their transfer kitty to try and acquire the services of a new left-back, especially after they failed to get any deals done in January.
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.
Now Cole has urged the club to sign Chilwell, after discovering the Leicester left-back is a Blues fan, he told the SUN: “I’d love to see him here. I think he’s a quality player, I’ve heard he’s a Chelsea fan so yes I’d like to see him here.
“But that depends if he wants to leave or if Leicester will sell him That’s something the clubs need to talk about.”
Ashley added: “There’s always going to be a question mark going to a bigger club, but he’s doing really, really well in terms of how he is playing with Leicester.
“He’s obviously enjoying the way Brendan plays, and the system, he’s got that license to attack.
“In terms of quality, for sure he has the quality to be here.”
