Chelsea are near hitting a £50million deal Leicester City for the signing of England international Ben Chilwell, writes Jack Rosser.
Frank Lampard has since a long time ago considered the 23-year-old his best option focus at left-back, a position recognized as an issue since the beginning of his rule.
The Blues have been following Chilwell since before January, yet held negotiations over the expense, with Leicester having at first would have liked to bank around £80m – like that Manchester United paid for Harry Maguire a year ago.
Be that as it may, given Chilwell’s craving to join Lampard’s team at Chelsea and the money related effect of the coronavirus pandemic on clubs, the Foxes dropped their asking cost, as uncovered by Standard Sport in June.
It is thought Leicester are happy with releasing one prominent player for each summer, as has been the situation with Riyad Mahrez and Maguire in earlier years.
Chilwell would add to an effectively amazing summer for Chelsea, who have not signed a player for the last two windows attributable to an transfer ban and afterward an inability to land certain objectives in January after the Uefa authorize was abbreviated.
Lampard and chief Marina Granovskaia have surely compensated for the absence of appearances in the last window.
