Ben Chilwell’s injury has ruined Chelsea’s plans to find the Englishman’s successor, as only Marcos Alonson is available at the moment.
The names that are circulating are numerous, as recently the leaders of the London club have asked for information about the Frenchman from Milan, Theo Hernandez, who has been shining for two seasons in the Italian championship.
Theo is seen as the perfect player for the left wing of the midfield, as he has high speed and technique, however the obstacle becomes Milan, who wants to play his chances for the title and can not accept the departure of an undisputed starter for the second half of season.
Moreover, the red and blacks have started the work for the renewal of the contract with Theo, who will hardly stay in Milan for a long time, as he is required by many big European clubs.
Other alternatives for Chelsea are Everton’s Frenchman Lucas Digne, who has broken ties with Benitez and is with his suitcases ready, but also the early return from loan, of the Italian-Brazilian Emerson Palmeiri, who currently plays for Lyon.
