The Blues are in the market for a left-back to replace Marcos Alonso, who is reportedly surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge, Leicester star Ben Chilwell is considered first-choice for Frank Lampard, but Chelsea have monitored Telles for a long time. Telles, 27, is out of contract in June 2021 and is unlikely to sign an extension.”
