Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is reportedly keen on signing Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell during the summer transfer window.

The Blues have now received a huge boost in the race for the England international after Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers admitted Leicester will find it tough to keep their star players.

“Harry came in, had a good couple of seasons playing at the club, great guy, good man, then obviously one of the so-called bigger clubs offers him the opportunity to go and play and he goes,” said the Leicester boss.

“So that is always going to be there, especially when you have talented young players. But our organisation is very much based on the team.

“It’s having those youthful players, who are hungry to learn, who want to be better, then of course having really, really top senior players, which I’m fortunate to have.

“We have outstanding senior players here that are very concentrated, very professional and of course they have big talents.

“Our challenge is to continue along that route, retain the hunger. It’s always going to be difficult for clubs like ourselves to be up there but we enjoy the challenge and that’s what we hope to try to achieve.”
