Defender Ben Chilwell is expected to inform Leicester that he wants to leave the club in order to aspire to play in the Champions League.
The Mirror stated that Chilwell‘s decision was not just the result of the club missing out on the opportunity to finish in the top 4. It was when they were defeated by United on the last day of the season.
However, the 23-year-old British individual said that the Champions League playground is where he deserves to play in the coming years.
This information will surely bring a more joyful message to Chelsea. The London team really wants Chilwell. He is considered the perfect link to help strengthen the ambition to compete for the Premier League title. That is like reaching out to the Champions League playground.
Coach Frank Lampard is a great admirer of Chilwell’s talent. But it will certainly be difficult because the Leicester team will fight hard to retain its valuable assets. The King Power team is not under pressure to sell Chilwell, because the player’s current contract is still valid until June 2024.
Besides Chelsea, another name that also wants Chilwell’s service is Man United. Manchester wants to strengthen the left wing corridor in the context of frequent injury Luke Shaw. While Brandon Williams still needs more time to improve himself.
Chilwell is still Chelsea’s number 1 transfer target on the left wing this summer. However, things are not easy because Leicester screams up to 80 million pounds for this young star.
According to The Guardian, two names are in the sights of Chelsea: Nicolas Tagliafico of Ajax Amsterdam and Robin Gosen of Atalanta.
The defender is preparing to leave Ajax in the summer of 2020 after reaching a deal to bid farewell to the Dutch representative a year ago. Ajax is expected to earn about 30 million pounds for the Argentine player. And this is an acceptable number.
