Chelsea are lining up a move for Borussia Dortmund right back Lukasz Piszczek, according to the Daily Mail.

Piszczek has been in action at this summer’s European championships for co-hosts Poland and his displays have left Roberto Di Matteo suitably impressed.

Di Matteo is on the hunt for a new right back after seeing Jose Bosingwa leave the club on a free transfer, and with Paulo Ferreira also likely to move on this summer, it leaves the Italian boss short of options on the right side of his defence.

Dortmund star Piszczek has now emerged as a serious candidate and the Blues are considering a move for the 27-year-old Pole this summer.

The Daily Mail claim that Ajax’s Gregory van der Wiel, Lille’s Mathieu Debuchy and Manchester United’s Rafael da Silva are all also under consideration, while Inter Milan’s Maicon is also thought to be a back-up option should Di Matteo fail to land one of his preferred targets.

FT Verdict

This report has come a little out of left-field hasn’t it? While Piszczek is a decent player and looked solid at the Euro’s for Poland, I’d be surprised if he ended up at Stamford Bridge.

No doubt Di Matteo will sign a right back this summer, and I have a hunch Debuchy will be the man brought in.

Who do you think Chelsea will sign this summer? Get involved in the comments section.

    Chelsea should sign Debuchy, Hulk and either of Moutinho or Modric. Chelsea should stop being linked with millions of players but rather they should identify key players and sign them up without much speculations. Hulk is a must if chelsea need to be solid in attack. We fans are tired of hearing these boring transfer rumours!

    All Chelsea fans i douf my kudos to u all. I’m highly impressed by ur comments and contributions. Well, my own view is that if Chelsea can not clinch on Hulk, Modric and Debuchy, then they should opt 4 V.Moses, Jovetic, L.picszek or G. Vand der wiel. Thanks.

    Up Chelsea, when a player is getting old, there should be replacement on ground before such player eventually leaves. Lukaku was brought to succeed/replace Drogba, so why d search for Drogba’s replacement? I think its time to start to consider our young players from d reserve, trust & encourage them, give them playing times. Does it mean we dont have right back in d reserve, what of Sam Hutchinson & co? remember those players u are pursuing were given time to play at their respective clubs before they became essential commodity. We’ve lost talented players like Sergio Tegera, Fabio Borini, Jack Cork,even Scott Sinclair among others. Josh McEchran is preparing for another LOAN spell. CHELSEA PLEASE WAKE UP, lets stop wasting money & face reality before those young gals start objecting coming to our beloved club. I rest my case for now.
