Sinclair: Chelsea need to look for new left back

Chelsea need a new left-back in January, says Frank Sinclair, with Leicester star Ben Chilwell considered to be the perfect fit for Frank Lampard’s side.

A move for the Foxes defender has been mooted for some time.

Frank Lampard saw his hands tied by a transfer embargo last summer, but he has been freed to spend once more.

It could be that interest in Chilwell is rekindled, although it would take a sizeable bid to tempt Premier League rivals into a sale.

Sinclair believes it is worth asking the question, with the Blues considered to be in need of reinforcements to fill a position that is proving problematic.

The former Chelsea full-back told Sky Sports when quizzed on the business that Lampard should be looking at doing in the current window: “I think they need quite a bit.

“The position that stands out to me at the moment is the left-back scenario. Obviously with [Cesar] Azpilicueta playing there at the moment, being shifted from right-back. [Marcos] Alonso has been in and out, as well as Emerson. I think that is the first thing that needs sorting out.

“Whether Chelsea have a left-back in mind… There have been whispers about the left-back at Leicester City, who is an England international.

“He’s a very good player and I think he would fit into the way that Chelsea play at the moment – the way he does bomb on and gives you that width and attacking threat.

“I think it’s definitely a case of left-back and probably a striker to either compete with Tammy Abraham or even be the main man.”
