Chilwell transfer to Chelsea confirmed


Chelsea have made their third signing of the summer with the arrival of English right back Ben Chilwell from Leicester City this afternoon.

The 23-year-old arrives at Stamford Bridge after signing a five-year contract, and will become Chelsea’s go-to player in the left back slot when Lampard plays his favoured four-at-the-back formations.

Chilwell was a key part of an impressive 2019/20 for Brendan Rodgers’ side in a system that demanded high output from the full-backs. Along with Ricardo Pereira at right-back, Chilwell performed well across the board and a move to Chelsea became ideal for both the club and the player.

The player became Frank Lampard’s top target at left-back, and it became clear the player was eager to move to West London. The move has been a highly publicised switch, with talk of an initial fee of around £80 million being quoted by Leicester. The two clubs were in discussions over the last month regarding the player, with the fee reducing to around £50 million as a result.
