Chelsea is actively working to secure the signing of Leicester City’s left-back Ben Chilwell, after meeting the £54 million release clause for Timo Werner at RB Leipzig.
Neither Liverpool nor Manchester United was willing to pay that money for the 24-year-old forward, allowing the Blues to close in ahead of next season on their second signature.
The deal with Chilwell is complicated by the lack of a release clause. Goal reports, the club, therefore, needs to negotiate a fee with Leicester to take him to Stamford Bridge next season.
However, Leicester has not put a price tag on its key asset which they intend to keep. Chilwell probably will cost over £80 m.
Depending on how their summer develops later on, Chelsea could go on adding players in swap deals or loans.
