Leicester could lower Ben Chilwell asking price in a boost to Chelsea



Chilwell is widely expected to leave Leicester this summer with free-spending Chelsea at the head of the queue for the England left-back


Chelsea has been given a glimmer of hope in their bid to sign Ben Chilwell from Leicester this summer.


The west London club is already close to completing a £53million move for striker Timo Werner.


And boss Frank Lampard wants to continue his spending spree with the capture of England left-back Chilwell.


Leicester, who look set to qualify for next season's Champions League, was holding out for £80m for the 23-year-old.


But according to the Evening Standard, the Foxes may now be willing to accept a few closer to Chelsea's £50m valuation.



Chilwell is contracted to Leicester until 2024 but harbors hopes of joining a bigger club.


And Brendan Rodgers has been ruling the rule over potential replacements, including Southampton's Ryan Bertrand who has one year remaining on his contract.



Leicester resumes their Premier League campaign next week with Rodgers's side sitting third in the table.


And Chilwell spoke last month about how the former Liverpool and Celtic boss has brought a new attacking spirit to the side.


"The manager wants us to score a lot of goals and be exciting as a team," he said.


"I remember at Southampton we were 5-0 up and the gaffer said at half-time not to let up or ease up and to And Chilwell spoke last month about how the former Liverpool and Celtic boss has brought a new attacking spirit to the side.
