Chelsea are close to the capture of Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell.

The Foxes full back has been on Frank Lampard’s radar all season, with it said the player is keen to make the switch to Stamford Bridge.

The Times claim that Leicester are ‘increasingly resigned’ to losing Chilwell to the Blues this summer.
