Chelsea Target Highly Rated Young Bundesliga Based Left-Back

Stamford Bridge side chase Wolfsburg starlet.

Check-In to Chelsea v Liverpool

Chelsea are scouting Wolfsburg’s Swiss international left back Ricardo Rodriguez.

Rodriguez, 20, is under contract until 2015 but a few clubs are watching him and AC Milan have already made discreet enquiries.

By all accounts Ricardo Rodriguez has taken to life in the Bundesliga well since his move to Wolfsburg from FC Zurich in January and is already attracting a great deal of interest from a number of Europe’s ‘Elite’. So much so that the Swiss international’s long term contract may not ward off suitors willing to stump up the cash to sign the 20 year old.

Chelsea may feel the need to strengthen the left-side of their defence. Ashley Cole is in the final year of his contract and may well not be happy to sign only a one year extension, as is club policy with players over the age of 30.

Though Ryan Bertrand has impressed when called upon he has arguably been more able to make an impact in a more advanced left sided role and could indeed be more suited to a role as a left winger.
