Chelsea close to agree deal with Leicester for Ben Chilwell. He is keen on the move and the opportunity for Champions League football.
According to Sky Sports News, Chelsea are close to agreeing a deal with Leicester for left-back Ben Chilwell.
Progress has been made in talks for Frank Lampard’s No 1 left-back target and although nothing has been signed yet, a deal is expected to be completed early next week.
Leicester showed last summer they will not let their players leave for anything less than big money when Manchester United had to pay £80m for Harry Maguire.
The Foxes are under no pressure to sell because Chilwell is under contract until 2024 but the situation could change if he asks to leave.
Chilwell is keen on the move and the opportunity for Champions League football with Chelsea.
