Man City, Chelsea target Leicester defender Ben Chilwell

Leicester City are resigned to losing Ben Chilwell.

The Sun says Manchester City and Chelsea are preparing £50 million bids for the defender.

Brendan Rodgers wants to keep the England international at the club but the Foxes are already scouting for a replacement - with Pep Guardiola and Frank Lampard expressing an interest in the 22-year-old, according to the Sun.

Manchester City have previously tried to pursue Chilwell last summer but ultimately opted to stick with Oleksandr Zinchenko and Benjamin Mendy as their left-back options.

The Europa League champions are also in need of a long-term appointment in the left-back position with Marcos Alonso considering his future at the club.
