Premier League side Chelsea are in a bit of trouble at the moment after FIFA had enforced a transfer ban on them. In effect, the transfer ban means that Chelsea cannot draft in new players until July 2020. Chelsea, meanwhile, are planning ahead instead of crying over spilt milk as their coach Frank Lampard has now identified Ben Chilwell as a long-term solution to their problem.
According to a report carried by The Sun, Lampard wants Ben Chilwell to don the Chelsea kit just after the Chelsea ban is over. Lampard is looking at his fellow Englishmen as a long term solution to their left-back woes. However, they would need to pay £70 Million to rope him in.
Chelsea have a couple of left-backs in their team – Emerson and Marcos Alonso However, Marcos Alonso has received a lot of criticism for his harsh comments but Chelsea have a long season ahead before they try and move in Chilwell.
Defending champions of the Premier League, Manchester City, had also expressed their interest in Chilwell before the summer. However, they stuck with their players Benjamin Mendy and Oleksandr Zinchenko in the left-back positions.
