According to FootMercato via Daily Mail, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has added Monaco left-back Bode Fallo-Toure to his transfer shortlist ahead of the summer transfer window.
Lampard is keen on strengthening the left-back position at the end of the season and while Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell is Chelsea’s first choice, his £60 million valuation is forcing Chelsea to look at other options.
Chelsea might not be willing to pay £60 million for a player following the financial impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on clubs.
Fallo-Toure is seen as a cheaper alternative to Chilwell and the Monaco left-back is also attracting interest from German clubs RB Leipzig and Hamburg.
Fallo-Toure’s athleticism and ability on the ball fit the profile of left-back Lampard is keen to acquire.
The 23 year old left-back joined Monaco from Lille in January 2019 and struggled under Thierry Henry but has shone since the appointment of Robert Moreno.
