Which of Chelsea's main defenders (except a well-playing Terry) would actually be much better than this guy? I'm guessing none.
He also seems to be getting better and better on the RB position. Would be a good signing for anyone, since he can play anywhere in the back four.

Azpi?

If Alderweireld picked up any form and looked decent for us, I'd be happy with this approach. Cahill would eventually take JT's place after one season should JT finally retire, and thus we would keep our ruthless defense mechanism!

Alderweireld won't play at RB for us (unless needed) unless he can do like what Ivanovic does going forward, even if he is suspect defensively.

Even if he can play on the right side, he is a much better CB than a RB.

I would have said that until this year. He's doing quite well for the NT in recent games. Growing into the role.

a decent cover for azpi, for both the CBs and as a RB. 6mil is his reported fee.

since we bought luis just an year ago for 16mil pounds, guess his market value should not take much of a hit. if we get 6mil + toby for filipe then we have essentially replaced bertrand with toby for no money.

Belgians underrate him heavily, just watch the forums of the fans that know him the best. The forums of Atlético and Southampton. Alderweireld is the best Belgian defender by far this season. Denayer also had a massive season, but needs to prove it at a higher level first. Toby has all the qualities to play rightback too and I think he is also great there.

That's not saying much if I'm being honest.

Alderweireld never even plays LB, where are people getting this from? He has no use in our squad unless we sold Ivanovic or loaned out Zouma. His positions are totally covered. No need to bring in another defensive squad player. If we're buying a defender he has to be of starting quality.

Please god no more CBs playing fullbacks here. I like Iva alot, but for a change I would like to have fast full back who is good going forward, skilled, with good cross and obviously can defend. Clyne for example.

Has to be left sided.
