Chelsea ready to battle Man Utd for Leicester fullback Chilwell

Chelsea are ready to battle Manchester United for Ben Chilwell next summer.

The Blues have decided that neither Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri are long-term options at left-back.

As such, the club's scouts have been told to look at left-backs from around the world.

One name already being considered is England international Chilwell, according to 90min.

Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are also interested in the 22-year-old.

The Blues have listed Basel's Paraguayan star Blás Riveros as a cheaper alternative should a bidding war ensue over Chilwell.
