Brendan Rodgers says Ben Chilwell can handle speculation surrounding a move to Chelsea — as he prepares to line up against them.

We have been signings players over the past few months as they seek to get the side back challenging once again, and there has been some talk in the media that Chilwell could be the next big named player to arrive at the club.

And now Rodgers has come out and claimed that Chilwell will be able can handle speculation surrounding a move to us — as he prepares to line up against them.

The Foxes boss said on the SUN: “I have no worries at all. Speculation is something you have to live with in this industry.

“He has good experiences now and can deal with that. It is a part of the game and we know that.”

Rodgers has been particularly impressed with how Chilwell has returned to action following lockdown.

He added: “Ben has come back and he has been brilliant. He has come back and looks fresh.

“In the lockdown he has really pressed the reset button again.

“He has been fit and his running ability has been great.

“His defending has been good — and you saw his goal he scored against Watford. It was a brilliant strike.”

Is Chilwell worth that £75 million that is being talked about? because that will be why we do not make a move for the man at those silly transfer prices. But he could be a great signing if he does come here.
