​Chilwell speaks with Leicester boss Rodgers about Chelsea

Leicester City left back Ben Chilwell has spoken with boss Brendan Rodgers about a summer transfer.

The Transfer Window Podcast claims that Chelsea want to sign the player this summer.

While Rodgers would hope to retain Chilwell, the player made it clear that he wants the move to happen.

The left-back acknowledges it may be his chance to test his abilities at a truly top club.

The Blues have a vacant left-back slot, as both Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri are odds on to move on in the summer.

While they are in the race to sign Alex Telles from Porto, Chilwell seems the more likely arrival given Telles is close to a deal with Paris Saint-Germain.
