Wikipedia seems to be ahead of us all, as they had gone on to confirm the transfer of Ben Chilwell from Leicester City to Chelsea.

Chilwell is set to be a Chelsea player, with reports claiming that the Blues have made progress in negotiations with Leicester City ahead of a likely transfer.

Some confident Chelsea fans had even gone on to edit Chilwell’s Wikipedia page.

The opening line read: “Benjamin James Chilwell (born 21 December 1996) is an English professional footballer who plays as a left back for Premier League club Chelsea and the England national team.”

It has since been reverted back.

According to the Daily Star, Chilwell has undergone extra medical checks in London as he nears a move to Chelsea.

A heel injury prevented Chilwell from participating in the final five games of the season for Leicester City, as the Foxes failed to seal a top four place.

According to reports, the 23-year-old has undergone extra medical checks to ensure that his heel injury won’t be a long-term issue.

The Daily Express report that he will have a full medical over the weekend with Chelsea, and it is hoped he will be fit to start in September.
