New top Chelsea target
Chelsea have now got Ben Chilwell at the top of their summer shopping list after wrapping up deals for Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner to bolster Frank Lampard’s squad.
The Blues are looking to complete an overhaul which will see them capable of challenging for top trophies from next season.
And it has emerged, via Le 10 Sport, that snapping up Chilwell from Leicester is their No 1 priority in what’s becoming a busy summer at Stamford Bridge.
Express Sport understands talks over Chilwell have already taken place, with the Foxes valuing the left-back at a cool £80m.

Liverpool in £100m snub
Liverpool have reservations about paying £100m for Jadon Sancho and are unlikely to launch a bid unless Borussia Dortmund rethink their valuation.
Jurgen Klopp will be eager to bolster his squad where possible this summer to help the Reds go on and build a dynasty.
But it seems Sancho will probably not be trading Signal Iduna Park for Anfield ahead of the 2020/21 Premier League campaign.
The Daily Mail report that, along with concerns over Sancho’s off-field disciplinary record, Liverpool are unimpressed by his whopping price tag.
Arsenal in swap deal talks
Arsenal and Roma are locked in negotiations over a swap deal which would see Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Justin Kluivert trade clubs on a permanent basis.
Mkhitaryan has been on loan at the Stadio Olimpico since last September and has admitted he is willing to stay there full time.
Arsenal are now looking into getting Kluivert in return for the Armenian but have hit a stumbling block in talks over an agreement.
Italian outlet Calcio Mercato report Roma value Kluivert more than Mkhitaryan and Mino Raiola is trying to get Arsenal to accept that stance so a deal can happen.
