Legendary Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole has admitted he would love to see Chelsea sign Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell in January.

Chelsea will be able to sign players in January after the transfer ban was lifted and Cole thinks the 22 year old would be an excellent addition to Lampard’s squad.

“There’s always going to be a question mark if you’re going to a bigger club,” Cole said.

“He (Chilwell) is doing really well in terms of how he’s playing at Leicester. He’s enjoying the way Brendan (Rodgers) plays and the system. He’s got that licence to attack.

“I would love to see him here. I think he’s a quality player. I’ve heard he’s a Chelsea fan. But it depends on whether he wants to leave Leicester or if they’ll sell him. But in terms of quality, he’s got that.

“If you buy a player you’ve got another three here you need to keep happy or sell. It’s a big decision but quality wise for sure he is good enough. When he’s played for England he’s played well. He got three assists last month. He’s shown quality both on the ball and off it. You can tell he likes to defend.”
