If Chelsea are in the market for a new left-back this summer, it does not look as though one is going to come cheap.
Marcos Alonso remains our only natural option at left-wing-back, and thus that is an area in which Antonio Conte could look to strengthen in the summer transfer window.
According to the Telegraph, the Blues are interested in signing Juventus left-back Alex Sandro. The Telegraph believe that the Serie A champions value the Brazilian at £45million, but it looks as though he could in fact cost even more than that.
Italian outlet Tuttosport believe that Sandro could in fact cost somewhere between £50million and £60million – which is an incredible amount to pay for a left-back.
Tuttosport report that Chelsea also face competition from Manchester City in the race to sign Sandro. He is one of the best players in his position in the world, but our pursuit of him is looking more and more complicated by the day.
