And The Telegraph claim the Blues have been made aware of what would be a very reasonable asking price.
Chelsea have a good relationship with the Dutch outfit, having already agreed a fee in the region of £37m for winger Hakim Ziyech.
Tagliafico is believed to be open to a move to London,and is eager to challenge himself in the demanding Premier League.
Speaking earlier this month to Argentinian station Radio Continental, the Argentine said: ‘Ajax it’s a great club, but as a player of course you dream of playing in the biggest leagues and the Premier League is right now the most competitive one, a bit above La Liga and Serie A.’
Tagliafico has scored six goals in 68 appearances for the Dutch giants since joining in 2018.
