To secure the signing of Leicester City’s left-back Ben Chilwell, Chelsea is actively working, after meeting the £54 million release clause for Timo Werner at RB Leipzig.
Not Liverpool neither Manchester United was ready to spend that money for the 24-year-old forward, enabling the Blues to close in ahead of next season on their second signature.
Due to the lack of a release clause, the deal with Chilwell is complicated. According to the reports of Goal, the club, therefore, needs to negotiate a fee with Leicester to take him to Stamford Bridge next season.
Chilwell probably will cost over £80 m. However, Leicester has not put a price tag on its key asset which they intend to keep.
Chelsea could go on adding players in swap deals or loans depending on how their summer develops later on.
