Chelsea ‘prioritise Ben Chilwell over other left-back targets’


Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell is still Chelsea’s main target in their look for a new left-back, according to a report.

Chelsea apparently stay concentrated on finalizing Ben Chilwell from Leicester City, in spite of less expensive left-back options being offered.

The Blues have already reinforced their attack ahead of next season and are now seeking to do similarly to their backline, having actually delivered 54 Premier League goals in 2019-20

England international Chilwell is Frank Lampard‘s leading target, however he has another 4 years to run on his contract and Leicester are claiming a huge fee.

That has resulted in claims that Chelsea might rather choose either Ajax‘s Nicolas Tagliafico, Porto‘s Alex Telles or Marc Cucurella of Getafe, each of whom are offered for under ₤30 m.

According to Goal, nevertheless, the West London outfit are still prioritising a move for Chilwell, even if it suggests paying in excess of ₤80 m.

Chilwell played 30 times for Leicester in all competitions in 2019-20, scoring 3 times and helping the very same variety of goals.
