According to The Sun, Premier League rivals Manchester United have joined the race for Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell.

The report claims Chilwell has emerged as a major transfer target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this summer as the Red Devils boss builds a side to challenge for the title next season.

Chilwell is a key transfer target for Chelsea boss Frank Lampard who is keen on strengthening Chelsea’s left-back position this season following his lack of faith on Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri.

Chelsea were believed to be leading the race for the Leicester City left-back but that could change with Manchester United now entering the race for Chilwell.

Manchester City are also interested in the left-back.
