Leicester City Star Ben Chilwell wants Chelsea move
Leicester City and England International left back Ben Chilwell seems, by all accounts, to be the next enormous Chelsea target and the second of our two marquee signings this summer, if all works out positively.
He would unquestionably fill a need, with neither of our two real left backs especially dazzling or ready to hold down the starting role this season — changed over right back César Azpilicueta frequently liked. One would expect in any event one of Marcos Alonso or Emerson Palmieri to be sold in the next transfer window.
Ben Chilwell has been connected with Chelsea for quite a while, so that is surely not new. Nor is Leicester City’s aim to not sell the 23-year-old.
What’s happening anyway is the price tag, which sounds monstrous at £60m (as revealed by the Guardian), however is in reality about £20m not as much as what had been cited in the rumour previously. It’s still what might be compared to a “not available to be purchased” sign, however the textual style is marginally littler and it’s not squinting any longer.
Leicester City sold Harry Maguire last season for £85m, and had been relied upon to charge a similar sum for Ben Chilwell. Is £25m a large enough pandemic rebate (30%) for Chelsea to seek after? It could very well be.
