I’m sure many of you are getting a bit bored with the constant transfer rumours involving Leicester City. Especially the consistency of new, expansive, diverse hearsay concerning England international Ben Chilwell. Well, us too.

Although Foxes of Leicester does, however, promise to assess the likelihood of each bit of speculation – regardless of how outlandish a rumour it may be. For example, we must be honest when we say Chilwell definitely has some huge clubs as current admirers. It is likely that he will be the subject of bids this term.

The transfer window may stretch until October, so there’ll be no letting up until a new contract is agreed. Or a deal involving Chelsea, Manchester City or whichever potential suitor actually pays the reported £85 million it would take to prize the defender from the King Power side’s grip.
