Chelsea remain locked in talks over a swoop for Leicester City ace Ben Chilwell, according to Fabrizio Romano
Chilwell has had another stellar season over at Leicester this season and has firmly become one of the best left-backs in Europe, which has led to reports in the media suggesting that we are keen on a deal.
Brendan Rodgers has previously stated that the Foxes have no intention on cashing in on their star left-back this summer, and have no need too over the next ten weeks of the summer transfer window.
However, our hopes of signing him will be handed a further boost this week after Leicester failed to qualify for that Champions League place and now Fabrizio Romano has given the fans an update on the possible deal.
When asked by a Twitter follower for the latest news about Chilwell, Romano replied: “Still in talks as Chelsea first choice. Still no agreement.”
There is so much speculation surrounding a possible deal, but the Blues fans will soon get their answer as the transfer window is now open and all the deals that could happen, may happen for the club.
Chilwell is definitely a player that would shine here, and is ready for a move to a big club, so if the reports are true and we are locked in transfer talks, hopefully a deal can be done quickly so he can move and get used to his new surroundings.
It would be a mistake to stay at Leicester another season.
