Ben Chilwell is out for the remainder of 2021, and depending on further investigation, could also miss the rest of the season.
With only 1 fit left-back in Marcos Alonso, Chelsea are looking at potential signings in the position in January, as per Calciomercato.
The name that has now come up is Everton’s Lucas Digne and the report states that the Blues have joined the race to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
The left-sided defender is capable of playing the wing-back role, and he has 13 appearances for the Toffees so far this season.
While he isn’t an ideal replacement, Everton’s struggles could be Chelsea’s gain resulting in a potential January move.
