Ben Chilwell’s exit from Leicester City has been speculated about for ages. If he leaves, this left-back is a replacement the Foxes desire.
Foxes of Leicester are not going to go on about Ben Chilwell’s very disappointing, lacklustre campaign, again. No way. Not necessary. He’s had enough stick; especially since it was less than two years ago since he made the Leicester City left-back spot his own.
Not to mention becoming the first choice left-sided fullback for Gareth Southgate for his country, England, in that timeframe. Subsequently, as we know, 2019/20 emerged as an almost difficult second album, to use a suffering musician’s metaphor.
Though this campaign doesn’t seem to have damped big six clubs’ craving for the Englishman. Manchester City were spoken of as admirers of the Foxes academy graduate last term. Then speculation moved to Chelsea more recently, with regards to being a potential suitor for Chilwell.
Transfer rumours began over two years ago, when Liverpool’s small bid for ‘Chilly’ was wisely rejected by Leicester. Obviously he is still really in the promising category; but at age 23 – consistency must increase at elite level. Which, in this contemporary era, we count Leicester City as.
Leicester City identify potential replacement
If Chilwell leaves it would be a sad day on Filbert Way. However when a commodity – excuse the detached, undemonstrative nature of the statement, it done is with Leicester City’s best interests at heart – becomes less valuable, business teaches us to sell in order to maintain.
If Chilwell is sold, then apparently Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney is being eyed up by the King Power outfit as a potential replacement. That is according to Bleacher Report. The publication also says that Caglar Soyuncu and Youri Tielemans will be offered new contracts at the club, with James Maddison’s fresh deal first on the list.
