Former Chelsea defender Johnson: Chilwell could do very wel at Chelsea

Chelsea should make a move for Leicester City full-back Ben Chilwell this summer, says former Blues defender Glen Johnson. According to the former England defender Chilwell would do well at Stamdford Bridge and that he is an ideal player for manager Frank Lampard.

“I’ve said many times I am a fan of Chilwell,” the former Chelsea man told talkSPORT. “I like the way he carries himself. You don’t really hear him unless it’s football related which I like, and I think he’s the sort of player Lamps would connect with.”

“He’s the sort of out-and-out left-back they haven’t had for a while. I know Ashley Cole was irreplaceable, but in terms of a natural, solid left-back, they haven’t had one for a while and I think he’ll do very well.” 23-year-old Chilwell has a deal until 2024 at Leicester City. It is believed the Foxes could hold out for a hefty €75m transfer fee.
