Chelsea keen on summer double swoop

Chelsea have maintained their interest in one of Leicester's star players this season, Ben Chilwell, with there being fresh reports that claim that Roman Abramovich is currently planning on sanctioning a deal.


According to reports, Chilwell has been one of Chelsea's top targets throughout the season, with Manchester City also interested in the England international.


Abramovich is still keen to bring two big-name signings this summer, despite the coronavirus pandemic greatly hindering the amount of funds available at clubs.


Apart from Chilwell, Chelsea are also interested in securing a move for one of either Kai Havertz, Jadon Sancho, Moussa Dembele or Timo Werner, as they look to add to their front line this summer.


Dembele in particular, has been linked with a move to the club for a long time, and the Lyon chairman has previously revealed that there was interest from abroad.


In case a move for Chilwell never formulates, the club are also looking at FC Porto's Alex Telles and possibly Matteo De Sciglio or Alex Sandro from Juventus. However, for the latter Chelsea will have to swap their current left-back, Emerson Palmieri.


So far this season, Chilwell has made 23 Premier League appearances and has been fruitful in attack, scoring twice and providing three assists.


The left-back is currently valued at around £35 million, yet Leicester might want more.
