Chelsea recognize Everton star as back-up transfer target to Ben Chilwell
Chelsea are purportedly considering a move for Everton star Lucas Digne in the event that their offer to sign Ben Chilwell ends in disappointment.
The Blues have just signed RB Leizpig striker Timo Werner and Ajax attacker Hakim Ziyech this summer and the club have now turned their considerations to signing a quality left-back.
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has recognized England International Ben Chilwell as his main target in this position but the Blues have been compelled to explore alternatives, with Leicester holding firm in their £75million valuation of the full-back.
Ben Chilwell is also on Manchester City’s radar because of Benjamin Mendy’s tireless injury issues since his move to Etihad in 2017.
To add to Manchester City’s disappointments with Benjamin Mendy, Pep Guardiola is yet to be persuaded that Oleksandr Zinchenkocould be his long-term solution on the left side of his defence.
As indicated by Ivisonsport, Chelsea and Manchester City are currently plotting moves for Everton’s Lucas Digne as a less expensive option in contrast to the England and Leicester left-back.
Be that as it may, it’s guaranteed Everton will be requesting a ‘high fee’ for the Frenchman who moved from Barcelona to Merseyside in 2018 for £18m.
Lucas Digne is a well known figure among the Goodison Park unwavering and has given a decent record of himself in the Premier League over his two years with the Toffees.
Neither one of the clubs have surrendered any desire for signing Ben Chilwell at this time however it’s unmistakable they have a battle on their hands in prising the talented left-back away from the Foxes.
Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is staying ‘loose’ about the circumstance and demands Ben Chilwell is adapting admirably to the steady theory encompassing his future.
