Chelsea have received a huge boost ahead of the summer transfer window after a top transfer target told his manager he wants a Chelsea transfer this summer.
According to The Transfer Window podcast, top Chelsea transfer target Ben Chilwell has told Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers that he wants a move to Chelsea this summer.
Chilwell is a key target for Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, who is looking to strengthen Chelsea’s left-back position with neither Marcos Alonso nor Emerson Palmieri managing to nail down a regular starting role.
Chilwell, 23, wants a move to Chelsea in a bid to line up alongside several England teammates of a similar age, including the likes Mason Mount, Ross Barkley, Tammy Abraham and Reece James.
Leicester City could demand a fee in the region of £85 million but the Blues are hoping the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic will force Leicester City to reduce their asking price for the left-back.
Chilwell is regarded by many as one of the hottest young talents in the Premier League.
