Thomas Tuchel identifies new Ben Chilwell’s replacement after Man City defeat.

Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic has been identified by Chelsea as a short-term solution to their problems at left wing-back following Ben Chilwell’s season-ending injury.

Chilwell, 25, is not expected to return before the end of the campaign after sustaining an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

Marcos Alonso has taken over duties at left wing-back since the England international’s injury but Tuchel has never been the Spaniard’s biggest fan and wants a more dynamic option.

Tuchel was keen to recall Emerson Palmeiri from his loan spell at Lyon but the move would cost Chelsea and the former Roma ace is keen to remain in France.
