Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell is being linked with a possible move to Premier League top-three finishers Chelsea and punters have been backing such a move in their droves, the bookmakers reacting by slashing the odds from Evens just a few days ago to as low as 1/6.
The left-back has long been linked with a possible move to Stamford Bridge, however there is now an obvious shift in the betting markets and the likelihood is that he will indeed end up in West London.
World Record Free
Indeed if rumours are to be believed, Chelsea could be forced to pay out a world record transfer fee for a defender should they wish to secure his signature. A quoted figure of around of £80 million would be around the same price that Leicester City received from the transfer of Harry Maguire last year.
Chilwell was one of the outstanding players for the Foxes throughout the 2019/20 campaign and his absence through injury for the final few games of the season was a massive blow for Leicester City. The left-back was also a decent attacking force and this was in evidence when he scored the equaliser against Watford a couple of months ago.
Nevertheless with the Foxes failing in their quest to bring Champions League football to the King Power Stadium for next season, rumours surrounding their key players moving elsewhere are unfortunately inevitable. With Chelsea’s defensive frailties being clear for all to see, a move for one of the best full-backs in the country seems like a shrewd move.
