Fabrizio Romano has spoken, and when that happens, football fans tend to listen.
The reliable transfer news reporter has confirmed reports from the last week that Chelsea are looking to sign Leicester City left back Ben Chilwell.
In fact, he has gone one further to say that the two clubs are now in talks over the signing, and that Chilwell himself wants the move.
The England international is aware that Frank Lampard wants to bring him to Stamford Bridge, and all will be on whether the two clubs can agree a fee.
Ajax left back Nicolas Tagliafico is Chelsea’s backup plan should they not be able to agree a fee for Chilwell with Leicester.
Chesea are also in talks with Leicester to sign Ben Chilwell. The left back wants to join the club – he knows Lampard wants him.
Nicolás Tagliafico is on Chelsea list as an option if Chilwell deal will collapse.
