Chelsea will have to pay £80m before they can sign their top target Ben Chilwell from Leicester City, KimTrendNaija reports.
Leicester City has made it clear to Chelsea that they won’t listen to anything less than £80m for Chilwell.
The Blues are eager to get a left back as they look to resolve their defensive problems for next season.
Chilwell has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge for a long time but due to his price tag a deal has been hard to complete.
To get the Foxes star, the Blues must break the bank for a record £80m transfer fee for the player.
Leicester have told Chelsea they will have to stump up a record fee to sign Ben Chilwell.
According To Reports From The Mirror Chelsea has been asked to pay more than £80 million to sign the England international.
If a deal is reached the Blues will be breaking a record which was set when Man United bought Harry Maguire.
A deal looks possible but Chelsea are not willing to splash out such amount of cash due to financial crisis caused by coronavirus.
Ben Chilwell is contracted to remain at the King Power Stadium until 2024, the club which he has been since he was 12 years old.
