Chelsea face competition for Leicester fullback Chilwell

Leicester City fullback Ben Chilwell is attracting interest from SEVEN major clubs ahead of the summer market.

The Mirror says Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, who has already completed the £53m capture of Germany international Timo Werner from RB Leipzig, would love to add the England left-back to his side as well.

But Chilwell has at least four options in the Premier League — two of them deemed to be realistic.

And there are further opportunities for him on the continent with interest from big clubs in Italy and Spain.

Leicester are under no pressure to sell the 23-year-old, having banked around £80m from Harry Maguire's move to Manchester United last summer.
