Chelsea are reportedly in the market for a new right-back to replace Cesar Azpilicueta due to their policy with players aged 30 or over.
The Spaniard has been a solid and reliable servant for Chelsea for many years now, but it’s fair to say he perhaps looks past the very peak of his powers.
Having moved positions a few times in recent years, Azpilicueta now finds himself struggling to look the real deal at right-back in Frank Lampard’s set-up this season.
And while the Blues have exciting youngster Reece James as a backup option, football.london claim they’re in the market for a new right-back.
It is not yet clear who they are after for that position, or when they’ll be able to make new signings again due to their transfer ban.
