Cesar Azpilicueta is one Chelsea player that has shown his versatility this season by filling in at right centre-back in Antonio Conte’s three-man defence, and it seems as though the Italian is keen on individuals that can feature in different positions – the Blues supporters in the tavern have been impressed with how some of their stars have stepped up to the plate this term.
That would be one of the advantages of signing Lindelof, as the 22-year-old is also capable of playing at right-back, and possibly even right wing-back, as well as his preferred centre-back spot.
Conte will want more competition in both of those spots for both Azpilicueta and Victor Moses in the future, and he could kill two birds with one stone with the acquisition of the Sweden international – the landlord is certainly beginning to warm to the idea.
