Blues’ coach Frank Lampard wants to sign a new left back, as Marcos Alonso will reportedly leave the club this summer. Despite having Emerson in the squad, Telles is one of the top choices or the Premier League side.
Despite playing as a left back, 27-year-old Brazilian international has scored 8 goals and provided 5 assists in Portugal this season. Frank Lampard highly rates this quality for Telles alongside his defensive abilities.
Leicester’s Ben Chilwel has been a long-term transfer target for Chelsea, but Portuguese media says the club is now prioritizing Telles, as he enters his last 18 months of the contract and doesn’t reportedly want to sign an extension.
