Chelsea fans have had a mixed reaction to the idea of signing Ben Chilwell from Leicester City.

The Daily Mail claims that Chelsea are leading the race for Chilwell, as Frank Lampard eyes making his first signing at Stamford Bridge.

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.

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.
