Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is a huge admirer of Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell and is keen on bringing the England international to Stamford Bridge this summer as he seeks to strengthen Chelsea’s left-back position.
Neither Marcos Alonso nor Emerson Palmieri have convinced in the left-back role this season, with Cesar Azpilicueta having to fill in at left-back in some games this season.
According to The Athletic, Chelsea’s transfer chief Marina Granovskaia is confident of reaching an agreement to sign Ben Chilwell from Leicester City this summer despite Chelsea and Leicester City being some way apart in their current valuations of the player.
The Guardian claim Leicester City want at least £60 million for 23 year old Chilwell but the Blues would prefer to pay £45 million.
