According to Sky Sports, Chelsea will announce the signing of England international left-back Ben Chilwell on Wednesday.

The report claims Chelsea will pay a fee of about £50 million for the transfer of Chilwell, who was Frank Lampard’s first choice left-back signing.

A deal between Leicester City and Chelsea was “almost done” on Tuesday evening, a source close to the negotiations told Sky Sports. The source confirmed Chelsea will announce the signing of Chilwell on Wednesday.

Chilwell will become Chelsea’s third signing, following the arrivals of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner.

Chelsea are also in talks to sign Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz and former Paris Saint-Germain captain Thiago Silva, who is set to undergo a medical on Thursday.
