Nicolas Tagliafico could be joining Chelsea in the summer.

Per a report by The Telegraph in the United Kingdom, Argentina’s Nicolas Tagliafico could be leaving Ajax. Per the report, Chelsea have been told that they could get Tagliafico for £22.4 million. Ben Chilwell of Leicester City is also apparently on the radar of Chelsea boss Frank Lampard but he has a price tag of over £40 million.

Still only 27 years old, Tagliafico has been linked with a move away from his current club with his agent even commenting on it all. The left back made the jump to Europe back in 2017 and has impressed several clubs since joining.

  1. Does he have the physicality to play in premier league…….most of the Argentine footballers struggle to get along with the English football except a handful of exceptions…..

  2. I’m not sure Lautaro and Tagliafico will immediately replace or bench Suarez and Jordi Alba. I want our best players to play in a strong league where there start on a regular basis. Anything else is less than optimal…

    • If Lautaro bench Aguero who is the best striker in the world along with Lewandoshki then finished suarez is nothing for lautaro. But Tagliafico to bench alba is almost impossible unless injured

    • I was among very few here predicted..Lautaro going to be a big striker…2 years ago. I still remember some was showing Gabriel jesus and said..Lautaro is nowhere near Jesus..! I responded..just wait and see in 2 years time..!
      I believe now, Lautaro can bench Saurez in the coming season…!
      IMO..The only area Lautaro needs improvement is passing..and he can surely improve that if hes in Barcelona.

    • IMO, Barcelona should pay the full release clause and secure him as soon as possible. He is worth more than that already..! Dragging the transfer will not be beneficial for both parties.

    • It doesn’t look that Lautaro or Tagliafico are going to Barcelona , inter will not accept anything except for the 110 M release clause . I predict that Tagliafico yes will leave Ajax for sure , Chelsea is good to move there . I wish like all others for Lautaro to go to Barcelona so play this season and train together before the Copa 21 and with the qualifiers , and it would of been more great if Tagliafico moves there .

  3. Walter Benitez will get his French passport on 2021 and eligible to play for France. I know he is quite appreciated there, hope that Scaloni call this guy first before he plays for another country.

  4. I would like to see Tagliafico in Barcelona. But he moves to EPL, he may play more minutes once he adapts Frankies direct play. He may face comparatively less competition from Azpilicueta and Maatsen with Chelsea for LB position. I’m just concerned about his passing skills, if he joins Barça it will improve a lot. I don’t follow Premier league much, if any one has idea about Chelsea’s passing or possession skills recently?
