Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel and the board are reportedly monitoring Italian left-back Leonardo Spinazzola this transfer window.
Thomas Tuchel has one of the best left-backs in the Premier League in the shape of Ben Chilwell, but with rumours that Marcos Alonso could leave the club, there may be space that will need to get filled.
And According to Il Messaggero, the Blues are interested in the Roma star after an impressive Euro 2020 campaign.
The report states that Thomas Tuchel is interested in adding to his defensive options and Spinazzola is one player that reportedly ticks all the boxes.
The 28-year-old has been influential for Roberto Mancini’s Italian side, picking up Star of the Match awards against Austria and Turkey for his displays.
The report also states that Roma, who will be managed by former Blues boss Jose Mourinho for the upcoming season, are attentive to any type of offer they might receive this summer, giving a big boost for Chelsea.
The former Juventus man is known for his overlapping runs and the ability to go one on one with the defender.
We have beeb very impressed by a number of Italian players this summer, and Spinazzola is a player that could easily adapt to the quality of the Premier League. But despite the reports claiming that Roma may be open to selling the defender, Mourinho will not want that to happen.
Tuchel will have alot of money to splash, but Mourinho will want to keep his best players, meaning that the Chelsea board would have to offer something ridiculous to even open up transfer talks.
