Reports claim Chelsea are close to signing Juventus defender Alex Sandro, and for former West Ham goalkeeper Shaka Hislop, he believes Sandro is the second best left-back on the planet.
“Without question (Chelsea should go in for him),” Hislop told ESPN FC.
“Alex Sandro is a perfect fit for anybody and I’ll say this unapologetically, Alex Sandro on my money is the second best left-back in world football. Second only behind Brazilian team-mate Marcelo.
“This is an incredible acquisition if indeed Chelsea are able to finalise a deal and get his signature. Perfect fit without question.”
Juventus had earlier rejected a Chelsea bid of £52m for the Brazilian, but it’s believed that the next bid of around £60m will be accepted.
