Lampard warned against overpaying for Ben Chilwell

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been urged not to overpay to sign Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell.

The Leicester City left-back is a top transfer target for the Blues, with Lampard keen on strengthening Chelsea’s left-back position this summer.

Speaking to GentingBet, former Chelsea star Frank Sinclair said: “Ben Chilwell is still a tough nut to crack.

“When you when you hear the way that Brendan Rodgers talks about Ben Chilwell, so strongly and how much [he is] a part of Leicester City going forward, I guess it would be a difficult one and he’s always going to be a very, very overpriced signing.

“For me, there’s a lot of world class, fullbacks out there and Frank has to get the right one for Chelsea Football Club.

“Obviously Ben Chilwell is a top player and England International, but I don’t think Chelsea should pay over the odds for him.”

Sinclair also spoke about Atalanta star Robin Gosens, another possible target.

“Robin Gosens is a good player, I’ve not seen much of him but I have seen him sporadically and he’s a good player,” said Sinclair.

“But for me, I don’t think it’s a case of looking for a cheaper option.

“Chelsea have not spent money in the transfer windows since Frank’s been at the football club.

“So I think he’s got money to spend and I think the owner will back him and he needs to go out there and get what he considers the best left back in world football.”
