Thiago Silva a fast fix for Chelsea, but a good one’ – 18-month veteran defender plugs void, Burley says

The former midfielder of the Blues can understand why Frank Lampard is an accomplished centre-half Brazilian and Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell
Thiago Silva can only be a fast fix for Chelsea, as the Blues close in on a center-half contract for the veteran, but Craig Burley thinks the Brazilian is a chance of transfer worth taking.

Following eight years in the books at the Paris Saint-Germain Ligue 1 giants, a highly accomplished South American is getting ready to take on a new challenge.

He has sunk into the pool of free agents, leaving the door open for Chelsea’s likes to make a pass.

A two-year contract at Stamford Bridge is believed to be on the table and Burley suggests that Silva will prove to be a shrewd, short-term solution to the defensive problems that Frank Lampard ‘s side has experienced.

ESPN FC has been told by the former Blues midfielder: “The guy should protect him.

“He was also part of a squad that is in the final of the Champions League and lost to the greatest team on the planet in Bayern Munich at the time.

“We’ve talked about the centre-half role, all the other guys are out there chasing the best players as well so you have to get in there fast, make a decision, make an bid, work out the role and think about filling it again in 12-18 months time.

“You can’t lie down on your back and watch him go somewhere else and then start searching for other center halves with that caliber and experience, because there’s not a lot out there.

“It makes me feel important. It’s not perfect to sign a 36-year-old [soon to be] but it’s a healthy 36-year-old who has good character, good experience and still can play.

At Chelsea, Silva is set to become part of an ambitious summer refresh.

Deals have already been lined up for Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner, while Bayer Leverkusen playmaker Kai Havertz is closing in a big-money transfer to west London.

Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell is another that the Blues have in their sights, with Burley adamant the England international would prove to be another valuable addition if fit and firing – even at £ 50 million ($66 million).

The Scot added: “After injuries, he had not had a strong second half of the season, the first half was pretty strong.

“The real Ben Chilwell is a future left-back top drawer, it’s everything you need, the speed, the big left foot and the engine you need to get up and down.”
