Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is prepared to join Chelsea counterpart Frank Lampard in the race to sign Ben Chilwell, according to a report.

Lampard reportedly took a huge step to improve his side last week by agreeing a deal to sign Timo Werner.

The news added to the excitement around Chelsea ahead of next season, with Hakim Ziyech also making Lampard’s attack one to watch next term.

However, reports say that Lampard does want to end there, with Leicester left-back Chilwell his next top target.

Lampard has given opportunities to Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri this season but he reportedly wants a top new addition, with the former pair linked with a move to Italy.

However, the Daily Telegraph says that Chelsea will face competition from City, if the Manchester club enter the market for a left-back.

The newspaper says that Guardiola has also identified Chilwell as his top target if the need arises.
