‘Really solid player’, ‘Would be great’ – Chelsea fans have identified the defender they want their side to sign in January

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are eager for Antonio Conte to bring in another defender or two. The Blues are pretty well stocked in terms of squad depth in their team, but the defence – particularly at left-back – is looking very light.

Marcos Alonso has been forced to play pretty much every game for Chelsea this season, and he has impressed. He’s one of Chelsea’s most potent goalscorers, and the threat that he provides down the left-hand side is simply sensational.

However, long-term, the Blues need more than just one option in the role, and so the fans over on the Chelsea subreddit page have been locked in debate over the last few hours over who the Blues should look to sign.

A number of players have been linked with a move to Chelsea over the last few days, with the Guardian linking Antonio Conte’s men with a move for either Porto defender Alex Telles or Roma ace Emerson Palmieri.

Though both are talented players in their own right, it seems as though only one name is attracting the Chelsea faithful over on Reddit. Indeed, Alex Telles is seemingly a very popular man amongst the Chelsea faithful – with many fans desperate to see him move to Stamford Bridge.

Take a look at what they’ve been saying about him below…
