Whether Chelsea fans admit it or not, they have been missing the explosiveness that Ben Chilwell brings down the left hand side whenever he’s on the pitch.

Since Chilwell has been out, The Blues have struggled without him. Although the blues have lost some of their other player to injury and COVID too, but Chilwell has been heavily missed.

Marcos Alonso replaced Chilwell in the Chelsea side, but he has not just had the same impact on the team as Chilwell.

There are talks that Chelsea will try to sign another wing-back in January to help the team. So let’s take a look at three options that can slot right into the Chelsea side.

Wing-backs Chelsea Can Sign In January

Lucas Digne To Chelsea

With Lucas Digne, you get pace and exquisite deliveries into the box, and sometimes free-kicks.

Digne has not been on the best terms with Rafael Benitez at Goodison park, and Chelsea can take full advantage of that. Everton are reportedly keen to let him leave after identifying a replacement for the Frenchman.

Nicolas Tagliafico: 

Nico Tagliafico has been linked with Chelsea in the past before they opted to sign Ben Chilwell.Tagliafico is a very smart and fast defender who can cross well and pick a pass. He can also play in the wing-back role because of his versatility. He will be a top class cover for Ben Chilwell, and he also valued at £20M by Transfermkt, so that’s a cheap buy in today’s market.

Theo Hernandez

A 24-year-old fluid, technical, and versatile left-back. Hernandez has all it takes to become the best left-back of his generation. Theo Hernandez style of play suits the way Tuchel wants his wing-backs to play. Theo Hernandez is valued at around €50M by Transfermkt.

Chelsea need a cover for Chilwell, and any of the names above will do a better job than what Marcos Alonso is currently doing.
