Frank Lampard suffers blow in bid to sign Ben Chilwell


Manchester City have now entered the race to sign Leicester City full-back Ben Chilwell this summer window, according to reports.

Frank Lampard has identified Chilwell as his top target in the summer window having watched from afar as the England international enjoys another excellent campaign with the Foxes.

According to The Telegraph, Man City are prepared to go after Ben Chilwell when they are in need of another left-black, with Guardiola considering moving Zinchenko into midfield.

Benjamin Mendy has struggled with injuries in his time at the club and City view Chilwell as their best option to strengthen the left-back position.

Leicester City will be pleased to have another major club interested in Chilwell after putting a massive price tag on the defender.

The Foxes want a figure around the £85million they received from Manchester United for the signing of Harry Maguire almost a year ago.

Chilwell has already established himself as one of the best left-backs in England after his rise through Leicester’s youth ranks.

The Blues are set to fork out £53m on RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner and Man City’s record signing is Rodri, who they paid £63.6m for in the last summer.

Like City, Frank Lampard would need to sell one of his current left-backs, Emerson Palmieri or Marcos Alonso, to make room for Chilwell.

Leicester City will not be pressured into selling Chilwell, who has another four years to run on his current contract but he is keen on a big-money move to Chelsea.
