Despite names like Alex Telles and Marc Cucurella floating around in the rumor mill these days, Chelsea’s priority signing at left-back was, is, and will be Ben Chilwell. But that doesn’t guarantee success, far from it in fact.

As per a report from Goal, while Chelsea are “increasingly confident” of convincing Chilwell himself to join the cause — he is said to be “interested” already so that shouldn’t be too hard in that case — we are far less confident in being able to agree a transfer fee with Leicester City for the 23 year-old left-back.
