It’s no longer news that Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is keen on signing Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell this summer.
Leicester City reportedly want a record transfer fee for the 23 year old England international, with reports claiming Chelsea must submit a bid of £85 million for Chilwell, a world record for a defender.
According to Don Hutchinson, Lampard should drop his interest in Chilwell because of the transfer fee that Leicester City will demand and sign Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico instead.
“Tagliafico all day long,” Hutchison told ESPN FC.
“We talk about transfer fees, the Chilwell transfer fee in the U.K., they’re saying over £75m-£80m which I think is astronomical.
“I look around Europe and I see loads of left-backs that are really good, if not better. I see [Marvin] Plattenhardt, I see Philipp Max.
“I think Tagliafico is the best one out there at Ajax, I think he’s terrific and I don’t think he will cost anywhere near £80m, half the money I would imagine.
“So he would get my pick, the Argentinian.”
