Ben Chilwell will wait on whether or not Pep Guardiola leaves this summer before deciding on a transfer to either Chelsea or Manchester City.
The Englishman is in high demand after a strong season with Leicester in the Premier League.
It has seen him cement his spot in Gareth Southgate’s England squad and emerge as one of the best full-backs in the Premier League.
Both Chelsea and City have taken an interest as they look at options at left-back to improve their squads amid problems with their current crop.
Frank Lampard and Pep Guardiola have frequently chopped and changed their starting XIs in that position.
Marcos Alonso and Emerson have not been consistent enough for the Blues and the same can be said with Benjamin Mendy and Angelino at the Etihad.
According to inews, Chilwell would cost either club at least £60m – with that total potentially rising if a bidding war breaks out.
A move in January is expected to be a hurdle too far as the Foxes intend to keep hold of their squad as they continue to fly high in the Premier League

But they may struggle to retain Chilwell’s services in the summer, despite him signing a new contract in October, which ties him to the club until 2024.
The 23-year-old is open to listening to both Chelsea and City, but inews report that he is waiting to see what Guardiola does at the end of the season.
The Catalan coach is rumoured to leave the Etihad at the end of the season and Chilwell is keen on being coached by the former Barcelona boss.
That does not rule the Blues out, though, as Frank Lampard’s strong affiliation to young, English players has intrigued Chilwell.
