Chelsea to fork out over £80 m for Leicester City’s left-back

Chelsea is interested in Leicester City’s left-back Ben Chilwell and will have to cash in £80 m to acquire his signature.

Before next season, Frank Lampard is supposedly keen to freshen up his left-hand defense options with neither Marcos Alonso nor Emerson Palmieri covering up in glory during the 2019-20 campaign.

The Blues have been highly linked to a swoop for Chilwell in recent weeks.

Although Chelsea’s attempts this summer to sign the England international could be hampered by the current financial consequences of the coronavirus pandemic.

Leicester would drive a hard bargain for Chilwell and are not willing to consider anything less than the £80 m they got when they sold fellow English defender Harry Maguire last summer to Manchester United, according to The Mirror.

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
