Chelsea beat Man City in the race to sign £80million Chilwell

Ben Chillwell will be the subject of interest from both Manchester City and Chelsea this season, according to reports but the interest from the blues is known.

The England left-back has an £80million price on his head set by Leicester, which will seemingly put off suitors.

And David Ornstein reckons City will have to move on either injury-prone Benjamin Mendy or Oleksandr Zinchenko to make the move happen.

Ornstein told the Tifo Football Podcast: “We know of [Chelsea’s] interest in Ben Chillwell of Leicester City, I don’t think everyone is convinced at Chelsea of the fee it will take to prise him from Leicester’s hands.

“City are also interested but are still involved in Champions League football, they will have to move on one or more left backs to free up the space and finance too.

“That’s going to be a really interesting one, and both clubs have other options too.”
