Leicester City are reportedly keen on keeping reported Chelsea target Ben Chilwell this summer as they are wary of finding a replacement in the current market.

It seems like Chelsea will have a hard time landing the 23-year-old who is reportedly on top of their summer shortlist.

A report from Sky Sports said Leicester are confident Chilwell is happy at Leicester and would turn down offers in the region of £50million.

Having struggled to find a replacement for Harry Maguire who joined Manchester United last summer, Leicester are said to be wary of lack of value n the market should they need to replace Chilwell.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are third in the Premier League and they are confident qualifying for the Champions League will encourage the defender to stay.

Leicester executives are also reportedly relaxed about Chilwell’s situation, as he still has four years left in his contract.

The England international has featured in 23 out of 29 games the Foxes have played this season, with two goals and three assists to his name.

Chelsea left-back pair Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri could leave this summer as neither of two has cemented their place under Frank Lampard.
