Chelsea Set to Move for Serie A Left-back in Replacement of Ben Chilwell

Chelsea have been looking for ways to fill the potholes left at their defence line, and their left-back in one of the potholes they must filled to prepare ahead of next season.

Obviously, Chelsea have made Leicester City's Ben Chilwell as their No.1 priority as per their dream left-back, but Leicester city announced that the Englishman ain't for sale. Though, Frank Lampard wants his country-man at Stamford at all cost, but Leicester city don't want to let him go.

The Frank Lampard's side have also been linked with Ajax's left-back Nicolas Taglifaco and Porto's left-back Telles Alex, but no further talks about the players. Ben Chilwell still remains the Blues major priority.

However, as at last week, Leicester City's boss declared that Ben Chilwell is staying at the club, regardless of what offer Chelsea are willing to make for the England left-back. And, that's why the Blues switch their attention from Ben Chilwell to Serie A left-back.

According to Kicker, Chelsea set to move for Atalanta's Robin Gosens, and the Blues have already made him their priority defensive target in replacement of Ben Chilwell. The Atalanta's left-back has already moved to Chelsea's No.1 priority as per left-back, since Ben Chilwell's deal ain't coming forth.

Robin Gosens is available around a fee half of Ben Chilwell. The Atalanta's left-back currently worth €30m and that's quite half Ben Chilwell's fee. But, the Blues are facing competition from the likes of Juventus,, Inter Milan and Hertha Berlin.

Meanwhile, Robin Gosens is just 26 years old and his performance in Serie A this season cannot ignored. The Atalanta's left-back has helped the Serie A side seriously this season, and his performance makes big teams lined up to sign him.

As a reminder, Robin Gosens has already made 38 appearances for Atalanta this season, as he netted 10 goals and registered 8 assists, and that's automatically 18 goals contribution in 38 appearances. 

Should Chelsea sign Robin Gosens instead of Ben Chilwell?
