Chilwell is rated £50m by Leicester and Chelsea and Manchester City are willing to do business with the King Power outfit. The English defender has made 43 appearances last season for Brendan Rodgers’ men, and despite not getting himself on the scoresheet, it appears his form has been good enough to attract admiring glances from both Pep Guardiola and Frank Lampard.

Leicester City is already out to get a replacement for Chiwell who could be on his way out of the club next summer.

Pep Guardiola has previously attempted to sign the defender last summer but aims to stick with Oleksandr and Benjamin Mendy as his left-back players while Chelsea is in need of a left-back to replace Marcos Alonso who is considering his future at the Stamford Bridge.
