Chelsea star Ben Chilwell is expected to be out until the new year after picking up an anterior cruciate ligament injury in the 4-0 Juventus win.
Marcos Alonso has replaced the injured Chilwell in Thomas Tuchel’s starting XI but several Chelsea fans haven’t been impressed with his performances in the team.
Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico, who was linked with a move to Chelsea last year before the Blues opted to sign Chilwell instead, is unhappy to have lost his place in the Ajax team and Chelsea fans have urged the Blues to sign the Argentine as an ideal backup for Chilwell.
As reported by Fabrizio Romano: ‘Argentinian left back Nicolás Tagliafico’s no longer a starter in Ajax team this season. Could be an opportunity on transfer market.
‘Tagliafico says: “If I was ten Hag, I would talk more with the players on the bench… this is important”, he told NOS.’
Reacting to Romano’s report on Twitter, Chelsea fans said:
@Emenalo tweeted: “Short term option, why not. Can’t be any worse.”
@Olalekslim tweeted: “I will take, he will be fire at LWB.”
@adewalefifteen5 tweeted: “@chelsea loan Tagliafico till June.”
@yyashsinghh tweeted: “Hope Chelsea are listening, no more Alonso PLEASE.”
@Rasmus24__ tweeted: “Id take him over alonso.”
@CFCChilly tweeted: “Some people wanted him ahead of Chilwell. I’d take him over Alonso.”
