Chelsea fans have had a mixed reaction to the idea of signing Ben Chilwell from Leicester City.
Chelsea’s transfer ban could be removed as soon as January, with Chilwell now in their sights.
But not all Blues fans are keen on the idea of having the England international.
Chelsea already have Emerson and Marcos Alonso who can play at left-back for them.
And there are some fans who feel that Chelsea would be better off spending their money elsewhere, while others think he would be a quality addition.
£70m+ on Ben Chilwell is a waste of money. He's good but definitely not worth that much. We should go for better options like Grimaldo, Telles etc. or give Maatsen a run at the first team. #CFC— J5️⃣ (@ShadeOfLamps) October 11, 2019
Chilwell is a good player but after Alonso and Emerson’s form so far this season it’s stupid to spend 80m on a left back. I’d see how Maatsen develops over the season and then re asses— Lewis (@CFCLewis_) October 11, 2019
Chilwell is absolutely quality— BD (@BD_13CFC) October 11, 2019

Chilwell is overrated.— Richard MD™ (@monemerichard) October 11, 2019
Emerson is better than Chilwell— M (@TacticalCFC) October 10, 2019

Emerson/Chilwel left back sorted @ChelseaFC
This would be a great signing— Matt-Matt71 (@mattmatt71) October 11, 2019
Now this does put a smile on my face— Abhishek Sawant (@sawant_2012) October 11, 2019
Chilwell is arguably England’s first left-back and he would join an exciting collection of homegrown talent coming through at Chelsea currently if he was to join.
The Blues would surely have to spend big money if they were to get hold of him though, as Leicester will not want to let one of their star players go when they are challenging for a top four spot.
