Chelsea Signs Ben Chilwell


Chelsea have secured the signing of Leicester City left-back, Ben Chilwell for a fee in the region of £50 million.

On making the move to Stamford Bridge, Chilwell noted that Frank Lampard played a huge role in the capturing of his signature. He said: “I am delighted to be joining Chelsea at this very exciting time for the club. I’m looking forward to being a part of this young, dynamic squad led by Frank Lampard as we challenge for honours next season. I can’t wait to get started and hopefully it won’t be long before we’re playing in front of the Chelsea fans at Stamford Bridge.”

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia added: “We are very pleased to have completed our third addition to our exciting squad for the coming season. Ben brings plenty of top-level experience playing in the Premier League, Champions League and at international level, despite his young age.”

“We are confident Ben will adapt very quickly to being a Chelsea player and with the fixture programme for 2020/21 especially busy, he is a fantastic addition to the squad needed to challenge for honours.”

Chelsea are expected to complete the signings of Kai Havertz, Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr.
