Chelsea Are Considering a Couple Right Wing-Back Targets

Chelsea Are

An exclusive from Fabrizio Romano has detailed who Chelsea are focusing on as right wing-back targets this summer. This comes as the club aims to beef up its depth in the position with Reece James currently the only natural right-sided wing-back in the squad.

Romao’s tweet stated: “Excl: Chelsea are considering many options for right-back position, to be discussed after Cucurella. Kyle Walker-Peters, one of the options alongside Denzel Dumfries…..Dumfries top of the list but Inter want to keep him, still no bid. Walker-Peters, discussed internally”

Chelsea Are Eyeing up Right Wing-Back Targets

Denzel Dumfries

Dumfries appears to be the number one choice as Romano’s report puts him “top of the list” but Inter Milan are reluctant to sell and hold all of the power. It would likely take a massive bid to get the Serie A side to part with the player who would largely be providing depth, although he could definitely unseat James permanently.

The Blues have been linked with the Dutch defender for about a week now but this new report indicates that no bid has been made as of yet.

Kyle Walker-Peters

After failing to break through at Tottenham Hotspur the 25-year-old has found his footing with Southampton where he has enjoyed regular playing time over the past two seasons. Based on the report the Englishman has only been discussed internally but he may be a better option than the expensive Dutch alternative.

Walker-Peters has Premier League experience and wouldn’t need time to adjust to the league, he would also likely cost much less than Dumfries. Getting a rotational option with experience at this level for a low price would be very smart business, if not the flashiest of signings. As of now, nothing seems concrete but Blues fans will at least be happy to see the side focus on right wing-back targets to improve defensive depth.
