“He’s a big player for us.”

Chilwell will not be cheap for Chelsea

Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea.

“Leicester are not going to be letting him go for a cheap fee when they hold the cards in dealing with the Blues.

“It could cost Chelsea more than £50 million to get the 23-year-old this summer.”

Chilwell played for Leicester against Chelsea in their FA Cup quarter-final tie, while Emerson Palmieri started for Frank Lampard’s side at left-back.

Habbord adds: “Chelsea might be able to subsidise some of the cost of Chilwell with the sale of Emerson.”
