Attacking proficiency on the right side of our defense is not exactly something we've possessed in recent seasons. That's hardly a secret.
Sure, Branislav Ivanovic has been outstanding as a fullback. Outstanding in the face of being forced into the position. Applaud the man. Still, no matter how much we love him (and trust me we do), his ability in the offensive third of the field has never been of elite quality.
Thus, with this perhaps in mind, links with varieties of right backs - well, one in particular, began as early as April.
Those links slowly waned, however. For what reason, we have no idea. I mean, it's not as if the club somehow miraculously unearthed a savior at the position in the last few months - sorry, Paulo.
Today, the right back chatter resurfaced. With whom have we been attached you ask?
