Chelsea chasing impressive West Ham newbie

Chelsea are considering a swoop for West Ham’s impressive left-back Aaron Cresswell if they lose Filipe Luis this summer, according to reports from ESPN.

The Hammers ace only switched to Upton Park from Ipswich Town last year, but his impressive form since stepping into the Premier League has won much praise from fans and pundits alike.

And this has alerted the Blues, who are facing the prospect of losing Luis in a few months’ time, with the Brazilian having struggled in his debut season at Stamford Bridge since joining from Atletico Madrid.

Cresswell is seen as an option by Jose Mourinho’s side, with his fine showings for the Irons having convinced the club that he can play at even higher level.

West Ham are unlikely to willingly let the 25-year-old move on, however, a significant profit may be enough to sway their stance.
