According to The Athletic, Chelsea want to make at least two marquee signings this summer, with Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell being one of them. The England international remains a main target for Frank Lampard’s side and owner Roman Abramovich is prepared to back the manager in the transfer market. Eighth-placed Spurs are seven points off the Champions League places, and while a fifth-place finish will guarantee a spot if Manchester City’s ban is upheld, the North Londoners have a huge task on their hands. Pep Guardiola’s side were also once linked with Chilwell, but it doesn’t appear that they will be pursuing his signature this summer. Despite Leicester’s valuation of one of their most prized assets, Chelsea think the impact of the coronavirus pandemic will help lower the fee.
