Pep Guardiola is supposedly prioritising the finalizing of a new centre-back this summer, instead of going for it to sign Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell.
Chelsea might have a clear run at finalizing Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell as Manchester City have actually supposedly prioritised generating a new centre-back this summer.
The ruling Premier League champions were rumoured to have joined Chelsea in the race to sign the England international, who is valued at more than ₤50 m by Leicester.
Pep Guardiola is keen to enhance his backline ahead of next season, however ESPN declares that the Catalan coach would rather hire somebody to partner Aymeric Laporte in the heart of defence.
Villarreal‘s Pau Torres is promoted as a possible option for Guardiola, while Inter Milan star Milan Skriniar is another rumoured target.
Chilwell has 3 assists and 2 goals in 23 Premier League appearances for Leicester this season.
