These Chelsea fans were impressed by Diego Laxalt’s performance on Saturday

Some Chelsea supporters are eager to sign Uruguay left-back Diego Laxalt after he produced a strong performance for his country in their World Cup last 16 win over Portugal on Saturday night.

Emerging as 2-1 winners in a hugely exciting 90 minutes in Russia, Uruguay are on their way to the quarter-finals, emerging as one of the dark horses to win the entire tournament.

One of their top performers on the evening was Laxalt, who produced a determined performance on the left of their defence, keeping Portugal quiet for the majority of the clash.

He plays his club football at Serie A side Genoa where he’s a regular. However, if some Chelsea fans get their way, he’ll be playing at Stamford Bridge in the future.

Many believe he could be a perfect choice at left wing-back for the club, possessing the kind of defensive attributes that would make them a lot more solid at the back next term.

These supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on a potential move after his Saturday display…
