Talk about us being in for Chillwell this morning in the papers, £60m.

Personally don’t want us to pay that much for him, decent player mind.
Zero chance. Left back is probably about 4th area at highest to bring a player in at. Let alone for what would probably be a half of our summer spend.

Get rid of both and as someone else has commented..... I am sure for £15-18m we could find numerous interested parties in the premiership
I'm all for selling him but in this window with all the shit going on and considering that we need to find a centre-back. There's still a player in there. Not a concern that he's on our books.

We have bigger worries

Yep don’t believe it either as it’s not an area that we desperately need to strengthen.

It’s most likely Leicester trying to start a bidding war/get Chelsea or Man City to pay up.

Highly doubt we our replacing Shaw tbh, been a fine performer all season, and getting into some very dangerous attacking positions post lockdown.

If by some chance we are looking to convert him to LCB, which I can't see, don't think he has started CB in back 4 before, but could be wrong, thin I would much prefer us to be in for Digne.

Really? I just don’t see him as a CB at all. He’s great as a LB, we should leave him there with Brandon a great understudy
Not saying it should or even will happen but I think he does have the attributes to play as a CB actually. He’s big, strong, good pace, ok in the air and decent on the ball. Better left backs than him have ended up playing CB

I thought Shaw did really well when played as a left sided CB in a back 3, his passing ability and pace would complement well with Maguire, will be interesting if Ole will play him as CB in a back 4 if we bought another LB.

It says a lot about our deadwood doesnt it when we are hoping to get £50/60m in sales when you consider what can be bought with £60m is very little.

I must say though, I find it bemusing some of the low values people on here have of some of our players. Jones for example many seem to think we would be able to even get a fee for
50-60m can buy you one good player. Example: Grealish, Donny Van de Beek, Konate, Upamecano, Zanoilo, Partey etc.

Some have suggested Shaw playing LCB. So Chilwell Shaw Maguire AWB.
I can see that Shaw has done ok in back three but the idea of him playing in a 2 is crazy to me. He'd get caught out in the air and I think he struggles with his positioning on the inside so I think he would get lost. The back three has worked because there is extra cover inside and outside.

I don't agree with this. With Bruno in, Matic, Fred and McTominay all in form and competing, and Mason blowing up, and with our new system requiring more attacking full backs, I would say left back and maybe even centre back are the weakest parts of our first XI. We do still need attackers but that is because our rotation options are a bit weak. To improve our first team we might well look at left back. I like Shaw but he is not good enough going forward, and Chilwell is better. There is some logic in it, especially if we could get good money in for Shaw, who is still a good player after all. Chelsea need a left back...
