Chelsea have identified Ben Chilwell as one of their main targets this summer. The Leicester City defender is one of the best left backs in the league and the Blues are prepared to break the bank for him.
As per The Athletic, Roman Abramovich is ready to back Frank Lampard in the market with two marquee signings this summer. Chilwell is one of the priorities for Lampard this summer.
It will be interesting to see if the Blues manage to agree on a deal with Leicester.
The Foxes will not want to lose a key star but if a good offer comes in for Chilwell, they will be forced to consider it. Furthermore, the player’s desire will play a big part in the transfer as well.
He is likely to be tempted if Chelsea come calling. He will want to play with top players at this stage of his career and a move to Chelsea would allow him to do just that.
The likes of Alonso and Palmieri are decent back up options but Chelsea need better players as starters if they are to challenge for the top honours.
Chilwell would be a superb long term investment for the Blues. They have the finances to pull it off and it will be interesting to see if they make their move in the coming weeks.
Chelsea have already signed Hakim Ziyech from Ajax to boost the creativity in their squad and it seems like they are keen on improving their defence now.
