EPL: Leicester City hoping on huge Chilwell fee


Former English Premier League Champions, Leicester City are believed to hope on a huge fee from the sale of Chelsea and Man United target Ben Chilwell this summer transfer window.

Both Man United and Chelsea are reported to be in the race for the England international left-back but the Blues are now believed to be leading in the race and stand a better chance.

Frank Lampard is keen on Ben Chilwell and is ready for a deal but it is reported that following talks between the two parties, Chelsea representatives were surprised to learn that Ben Chilwell is valued the same with Man United’s Harry Maguire.

It would be recalled that Harry Maguire joined the Red Devils last summer transfer window with a fee of £80 million which made him the world’s most expensive defender.

However, Leicester City are reportedly hoping on the fee with the assurance that the Blues will meet Ben Chilwell’s valuation so that they can sanction other transfer deals for the club.

Man United are already losing in the race because they might not be able to meet the £80 million fee as a result of other financial commitments, especially in their chase of England international winger, Jadon Sancho.
