With Ashley Cole leaving Chelsea this season only and Cesar Azpilicueta only a converted left back by Jose Mourinho the need for a left back at Chelsea is there for everybody to see. With the rigours of a full season ahead Jose Mourinho is smart enough to realize that he needs another left back to cope up with pressure. While it would not be easy to convince a really good left back to come to Chelsea to essentially play back up to Cesar Azpilicueta, which is exactly what Jose Mourinho will have to do. We here at Soccersouls take a look as to the three left backs Chelsea should target to play for them next season.
1. Filipe Luis: The Atletico Madrid left back is one player Jose Mourinho would love to bring at Stamford Bridge. At 28 he is at the prime of his career and is definitely one of the best left backs in the La Liga. Most essentially for Chelsea he is very solid both defensively and going forward. He was a part of the Atletico Madrid defense which was comfortable holding on to 1-0 leads all the time. Also he is a very good crosser of the ball which will make Chelsea want him more. However one potentially stumbling back is the amount of transfer fee Atletico Madrid will charge for this left back in his prime and whether Chelsea who are trying to comply with FFP rules will shell out the money for him.
