If Chelsea plan to sign Ben Chilwell during this transfer window, they have to shell out. According to recent reports, Leicester City won’t let the left-back go for less than £80 million, which means Chilwell could become one of the most expensive defenders all around the world. Despite this, Frank Lampard still wants to see the young footballer at Stamford Bridge.
Is Chilwell worth the money? The Foxes are definitely sure of the price. They believe the 23-year-old should cost no less than Harry Maguire after the centre-back moved to Manchester United for an impressive £80 million fee last year. Moreover, Leicester would like to get even more than the whopping sum of money that the Red Devils agreed to fork up for Maguire.
Chilwell has played at Leicester since he was 12, and his current contract will end in 2024. The Englishman is thought to want to join the Blues as he looks forward to a better future at Chelsea.
