Norwich City should be looking to sign this Chelsea player to solve problem position

Published

After a disappointing 2016/17 campaign, Norwich City will be aiming for a better attempt next season.

They have replaced Alex Neil with Borussia Dortmund II coach Daniel Farke and with a new Sporting Director, plenty of change if expected this summer.

A number of players have been let go and there are also a number of players on the transfer list.

Norwich will be looking to sign some first team quality stars too and one position they will need to examine is left back.

They started the season with two quality left backs but they both departed in January – Robbie Brady to Burnley and Martin Olsson to Swansea City.

Their replacement was Mitchell Dijks, who was impressive but was only on loan from Ajax.

Next season, they only have young Harry Toffolo in the left back position and he is young and raw still so they will be looking for another left-sided full back to challenge him for the starting spot.

Cristian Cuevas should be on their wishlist.

The Chelsea youngster is unlikely to be breaking through with Marcos Alonso starring in a left wing back role for the Premier League champions but he could benefit Norwich.

The Canaries should be looking at the 22-year-old either on loan or on a permanent deal.

The attack-minded left back, who can also play on the left wing, has had numerous loan spells and spent the past two seasons learning his trade in the Belgian top tier with Sint-Truiden.

The Chilean defender, who could make his international debut soon, could prove to be a shrewd signing for Norwich.
