Chelsea are currently working on a number transfer targets this summer.
The left back area appears to be a real priority for Frank Lampard, with doubts over his current options Emerson Palmieri and Marcos Alonso.
It has been widely reported that Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell is a priority target for Lampard this summer, and that has been reiterated in the latest report from Goal.
As written by the reliable Nizaar Kinsella, the report states that Chelsea remain focused on signing Chilwell, and they are hopeful that he will put pressure on his own club to help make a move to Stamford Bridge more straightforward.
Chilwell asking for a transfer will certainly make any deal easier as his club appear to be keeping a stronghold on him right now.
Chelsea look to be focused on landing their manager’s number one target for that position, but it looks like there could be a long road ahead on this story yet.
