Leicester City, Atletico Madrid and Manchester City are reportedly set to provide stiff competition to Chelsea in pursuit of Nicolas Tagliafico, who is valued around £24.5 million according to the Sun. Chelsea are among the clubs keeping tabs on Nicolas Tagliafico who they reportedly see an as alternative to Leicester City's Ben Chilwell who is Frank Lampard's preferred choice as Frank Lampard seeks to bolster his defensive options this summer.

Chelsea will face stiff competition from Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, who are also keen on strengthening their left-back options with Benjamin Mendy the only recognized left-back, Oleksandr Zinchenko usually deputise for the French International, but he is ideally a central midfielder. Tagliafico has a verbal agreement with Ajax that could see him leave the club for just £24.5m this summer, the Argentine International was reportedly linked with a move to Premier League last summer, but he decided to stay at the Johan Cruyff Arena for another season. Tagliafico has featured 24 times for Ajax this season, scoring seven goals in 27 appearances.

Tagliafico could be a good signing for the Blues considering the problems they have faced in the left-back department with Emerson Palmieri and Marcos Alonso failing to impress Frank Lampard, both players have often lacked tactical and positional discipline.As a result, Frank Lampard has used right-back Cesar Azpilicueta in the left-back role extensively this season.

However, it remains to be seen whether or not Chelsea will manage to sign the Argentine International especially with Manchester City and Atletico Madrid also showing a keen interest.
