Chelsea to go head-to-head with PSG in race for Tagliafico

Chelsea are still in search for a worthy replacement for Ashley Cole six years after his departure. They have now set their sights on Nicolas Tagliafico but face competition from PSG for his signature.

Tagliafico could be the second Ajax player to arrive at Stamford Bridge next season following Hakim Ziyech’s already confirmed move to Chelsea.

Chelsea’s current left-backs are subject of interest from previous managers.

This necessitates the search for reinforcements which has seen several names linked with a move.

Ricardo Schlieper, who is Tagliafico’s agent confirmed that contacts have been made with both PSG and Chelsea over a possible transfer.

Ajax have set a valuation of about £22.3m (25 million Euros) for the Argentine. That would represent a fantastic piece of business for whoever gets him.

He was a part of the Ajax team that stunned the world and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League last season.

The 27-year-old is another example of a modern-day full-back that is comfortable on the ball and contributes offensively.

He has contributed directly to nine goals (four goals and five assists) in all competitions this season.

Tagliafico is also astute defensively winning 2.93 tackles per game this season at an impressive success rate of 66.2%.

The Argentine certainly possesses the needed qualities to man the left side of Chelsea’s defence.

The Blues will hope Tagliafico snubs PSG and follow Hakim Ziyech to west London next season.

It would undoubtedly see them boast one of the best left-backs in world football six years on from losing its best ever.
