Chelsea are keen on signing Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell next summer with Chelsea boss Frank Lampard seeing the 22 year old as a perfect fit in his Chelsea team.

While Chilwell is Chelsea’s number one target next summer at left-back, the Blues have identified a possible alternative if the club is unable to sign the England international.

According to 90min, the Blues are reportedly looking at Basel left-back Blas Riveros in case the club fails to land Leicester’s Ben Chilwell.

The report claims Lampard isn’t convinced with Emerson Palmieri and Marcos Alonso and is keen on signing a left-back next summer.

Riveros, a Paraguayan international, is considered a huge talent and it seems the Blues have had their eye on him for some time, according to 90min.

21 year old Riveros joined Basel from Paraguayan club Olimpia in 2016.
