Chelsea scout Basel left-back Blas Riveros in case they fail to land No1 transfer target Leicester’s Ben Chilwell – The Sun

CHELSEA are reportedly looking at Basel ace Blas Riveros in case they fail to land Leicester’s Ben Chilwell.

90min claims Frank Lampard is on the hunt for a new left-back, with Marcos Alonso and Emerson failing to set Stamford Bridge alight.

England international Chilwell, 22, has quickly become one of the league’s top defenders.

And Lampard believes he would be a perfect fit in Chelsea’s new-look XI.

Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori and Callum Hudson-Odoi have all fought their way into Lampard’s starting line-up.

Reece James and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are set to follow after lengthy injury lay-offs.

And Chilwell could be the perfect solution to Chelsea’s left-back conundrum.

Italy international Emerson has been linked with a move to Serie A champs Juventus.

But Alonso could still prove to be useful after showing off his fantastic technique with a mind-blowing free-kick in training.

Meanwhile, free-scoring striker Abraham is reportedly set to sign a new £100,000-a-week contract.

The 22-year-old academy graduate has bagged eight league goals already this season.

And Abraham is now set to be rewarded for his fine form.
