Chelsea had previously been linked with the Ben Chilwell back but no concrete offer was reportedly made for the England International.
Ben Chilwell has been mesmerizing the fans and media with consistent performances since he made his debut for the Foxes. Many EPL top teams have been on hot chase for his signature but Leicester City has so far successfully shielded their priced asset from slipping through their hands.
The Leicester City’s left back is known to be good at tackling, dribbling and who likes to play short passes. He has so far made eleven senior appearances for England since making his debut in 2018.
For Leicester City this season, Chilwell has continued to deliver a consistent and all round performances, both at defending and attacking.
His defensive qualities is evident in his stats this season, where he has had a success rate of 63.2% tackles, averaging 1.1 interception per game and 2 clearances per game. His offensive contributions couldn’t be faulted as well, as he makes 1.1 key passes per game this season.
As Chelsea are believed to be preparing for Emerson’s imminent exit due to his search for a regular playing time and with first choice left back ‘Alonso’ been inconsistent this season, Chelsea will be hoping to finally land one of their main target Ben Chilwell this summer, as he’s been touted to be their long-term solution at left back.
