Chelsea have long been interested in Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell, with the Blues keen on signing a new left-back in the summer.

The left-back position remain a key place that Frank Lampard needs to strengthen this summer, and the Blues have earmarked Chilwell as the first choice to fill that position for the club.

Meanwhile, Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has maintained that Chilwell is not for sale, and he made this clear in his press conference on Friday.

“He’s a Leicester City player and not a player we want to lose,” Rodgers said when asked about Chilwell’s future ahead of the Premier League trip to Tottenham on Sunday.

“I’m quite relaxed on it. I’m not worried at all. We’ve got a fantastic squad, a squad we want to keep together. There’s no intention to sell Ben Chilwell and there’s absolutely no need to sell.

“So the message is he’s not for sale – it’s as simple as that.”
