Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell injury news

 Chelsea defender Ben Chilwell, 25, suffered a cruciate ligament injury in last month's 4-0 win over Italian giants Juventus.

 Initially, the British international seemed to be incapable of repairing the injury, but after further examination and examination, he concluded that he needed surgery to overcome his knee problem.

 That news has now been confirmed by several sources as Chelsea are the only natural left-back to have Spanish defender Marcos Alonso, which could prompt Thomas Tuchel to make some moves this January. There is only one option left in the left.

 The Blues are likely to be looking for a new left-back in January, so let's take a closer look at the signings they could make there.

 1) Lucas Digne (Everton).

 Reports have suggested that the Stamford Bridge club are already considering a January move, with the Blues reportedly finally interested in signing the French striker.

 Digne has fallen out with new Everton manager Rafa Benitez following a row with the striker. The former Barcelona defender did not feature for the Toffees after losing 4-1 away to Liverpool on December 1 and is set to leave Merseyside in January.

 If Tuchel decides to sell the 28-year-old away from Goodison Park in January, the move will help the star adapt quickly to Chelsea as he has enough Premier League experience.

 2) Nicholas Tagliafico (Ajax).

 Argentine left-back Thomas Tuchel is another player who fits in with Chelsea's plans.

 Taglificico, who has made 146 appearances for the Netherlands since joining the Eridivzi club in January 2018, has a wealth of experience and has made 36 appearances for Argentina.

 The 29-year-old has just 18 months left on his current deal and could come at a cheaper price.
