Chelsea and Manchester City are reportedly in the race for Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell but according to Evening Standard, Chelsea hold advantage over City in the pursuit of the England international.
Manchester City are challenging a pre-season ban from European football imposed by UEFA and a decision isn’t expected until August.
According to Evening Standard, if Manchester City lose their appeal, they will be without top level European football for two years. And in that case, Chilwell would prefer a move to Chelsea.
With a decision not expected until August, Chilwell’s transfer may have been decided by then.
