According to The Times, Chelsea had shortlisted a number of defenders who were set to be signed up. They had identified Westham star Declan Rice, Porto star Alex Telles, Real Madrid loanee Sergio Reguilon, Leceister leftback Ben Chilwell and Brighton Albion centerback Dunk.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was really interested in bringing Ben Chilwell because of age and Premier League experience. He is England’s first choice hence highly valued. Despite fans not fancing the deal, Ashley Cole has backed up the deal to be a success.
Ben Chilwell was earlier on valued at £80 million. That appeared to be an overrated approach concerning the current pandemic. Chelsea negotiator Marina has now made a breakthrough in the negotiations.
According to latest reports, Chelsea have sealed the negotiations at a fee of £64 million inclusive of ad ons and bonuses. That is a great deal since Ben Chilwell is an asset due to his young age. Further reports from Leceister City insider indicated that the leftback had packed his bags and left their training ground. The news have stated that he set for medical test next week.
Chelsea fans what is your take on Ben Chilwell joining Chelsea to seal the leftback position?
