Chelsea fans sent exciting transfer message about possible £70 million summer signing
Christian Fuchs has made an exciting prediction about Ben Chilwell’s future, with Chelsea linked with a transfer move.
Emerson Palmieri made a strong start to the campaign, but has been dealt with several injury problems and we have had to turn to Marcos Alonso, who you feel is not a particular favourite of Lampard’s.
Cesar Azpilicueta has played in that position, despite being a right-back, while Reece James has also done a job on the left, so we will need to delve into their transfer kitty to try and acquire the services of a new left-back, especially after they failed to get any deals done in January.
And as we said, Chilwell has enhanced his reputation this season with a series of impressive displays for title-chasing Leicester and is one of the best full-backs in the top flight, meaning that he is top of the shopping list in the summer.
And According to reports we lead the race to sign the 23-year-old full-back and are confident we can persuade him, and Leicester to do a transfer deal in the summer, although it is believed that Leicester will want close to £80 million for Chilwell.
Now Fuchs has opened up and admitted that he believes that Chilwell has the ability to become one of the best, he was quoted on the SUN: “He will be one of the top left-backs in England for years.”
“He has definitely improved,” Fuchs told Goal.
“He has a good amount of England caps already, which just shows his ability. At an early age like that, to play for the national team for that amount of games is really good.
“As a young player, I have been in that situation. You still find yourself learning a lot from games and facing other teams. So, he is in a good place and I think he will be one of the top left-backs in England for years to come.
“The good thing for him is that, at 23, he is still young, with a lot of potential to improve in the future.”
