Chelsea advised to pay record-breaking fee to sign Premier League star
Chelsea have supposedly been advised by Leicester City to pay a world-record transfer fee for a left-back if they need to sign Ben Chilwell this summer.
Leicester City left-back has shone in the Premier League recently, demonstrating himself to be one of the best young full-backs in Europe and like somebody who could be a fine fit at Chelsea.
As per report, in any case, Ben Chilwell won’t come modest, with the Foxes needing more than the £80m they ended up pocketing for Harry Maguire the previous summer.
It is not yet clear if Chelsea will be persuaded Ben Chilwell merits that sort of investment, with the club maybe expecting to hinder a brief time after a bustling start to the summer.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has just included enormous names in Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech to his squad, however could now do with concentrating his endeavors on fortifying in defence.
Ben Chilwell would doubtlessly be a significant upgrade on the likes of Emerson Palmieri and Marcos Alonso, but £80m appears to be a ton to pay, even for a player of his calibre.
Full-backs are an inexorably significant piece of the modern game, notwithstanding, with Liverpool pair Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold demonstrating key attacking outlets in Jurgen Klopp’s title-winning side.
If the Blues are to close the gap, spending enormous on Ben Chilwell could be a significant piece of their rebuilding process.
