The central defender is currently on the books of Chilean outfit Universidad de Chile however he has yet to make his first-team debut.

However speaking to La Tercera, Alvial spoke of the London’s side interest “Igor is a very good player, I have been following him for some time and he is in the mind for Chelsea. He is one of the young players that I see that has good future, as he has good skills.”

“The scouting on Lichnovsky has already been done for Chelsea, but we are going on step by step, being calm, having a look to all what this situation involves” he said.

“We have to consider that the transfers from South America to England are difficult.

“For example, I followed Franco Di Santo and when he was transferred to Chelsea he spent six months getting adapted.”
