Leicester City’s left-back Ben Chilwell is reportedly close to joining Chelsea in a £50 million deal this summer.

The 23-year-old is dividing opinions among Chelsea fans but one man who knows a lot about the positions (left-back), Ashley Cole believes he’s good enough for Chelsea.

In December 2019, the former Chelsea left-back and current youth team coach was full of praise for Ben Chilwell and wanted him to sign for the club.

“When he’s played for England he’s played well,” Cole told TalkSport.

“He’s shown quality not just on the ball, but one-on-one he can defend and he likes to defend.

“I think he’s quality and I’ve heard he’s a Chelsea fan, too, so I would like to see him here.

“Whether he would want to leave, or if Leicester would want to sell him, that’s something the clubs would have to talk about. He’s got the quality. For sure he’s good enough.”

Chelsea will be hoping to complete the signing of the 23-year-old England International as soon as possible to enable them focus on other targets.
