There are currently many rumours linking cash-strapped Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney to Leicester City – if Ben Chilwell leaves the Foxes.

If Foxes of Leicester were asked right now to rate the chances of Chelsea signing Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell: we would have to say it is seemingly more likely than not, presently.

This assessment from FoL has not only developed due to the amount of rumours linking the Fox with the Pensioners in the national media, or the speculation that he is now interested in a transfer – but the recent report that the King Power side are apparently willing to relinquish one of their star players this summer.

Would Leicester City replace Ben Chilwell?

Another important element of the ‘Chilwell to Chelsea saga‘ is the other claim in prominent newspapers and online that Leicester City shall demand £85 million for their left-sided man. To be honest, that figure is an astonishingly large estimate; especially for an athlete who reduced their standard of quality, output, consistency and focus this campaign.

Meanwhile, if the East Midlands team decide to accept Chelsea’s reportedly low valuation of £45m, or meet in the middle with Frank Lampard’s outfit at £65m, the Foxes will desperately require a new first-class left-back. That may transpire to be Kieran Tierney, if other hearsay – albeit from professional experts – is to be believed.

Arsenal are said to have money problems by transfer specialist Duncan Castles, in a story carried by Express. In addition, the Gunners are supposedly considering selling the Scottish international. Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers worked with the 23-year-old at Celtic, of course. While Castles suggests Rodgers wanted Tierney at Leicester a year ago – before Unai Emery signed him. The journalist also says Arsenal want to rebuild again, though need funds to do so with Tierney being allegedly dispensable.
