CHELSEA are considering a swoop for Wolves wing-back Rayan Ait-Nouri.
The Blues could look to strengthen on the left of their back-five, with Marcos Alonso linked with a summer move to Barcelona.

Ait-Nouri would provide competition and cover for Ben Chilwell in the left wing-back slot at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea and England ace Chilwell spent six-months of the recent campaign out with a cruciate ligament injury.
Ait-Nouri meanwhile played 27 games in all competitions for Wolves, helping Bruno Lage's side to a 10th-place finish in the Premier League.

And his form has led to the Blues considering whether to make a move.
Ait-Nouri has played 51 times in total for Wolves after signing from French club Angers in October 2020, initially on loan.
Defensive reinforcements this summer are top of Tuchel's agenda, with Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen leaving as free agents.
There is also uncertainty regarding the futures of Alonso and club captain Cesar Azpilicueta.
