Chelsea have completed the signing of Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell with an official announcement set to be made early next week.
Sky Italia Transfer specialist, Fabrizio Romano revealed this on Twitter. This comes after news broke yesterday that Chelsea are close signing the England international.
Chelsea on next few days will announce Chilwell deal, go on to receive final answer from Thiago Silva and continue negotiations with Bayer Leverkusen for Kai Havertz after new bid made yesterday. 🔵 #CFC #Chelsea #transfers

The exact fee for this operation is still unknown but reports suggest Chelsea will pay close to £50m for the 23-year-old who has already agreed personal terms with the club.
Leicester had demanded £80m for Chilwell but their failure to qualify for the Champions League hurt their negotiating position.
Chilwell is currently injured, missing the end of the campaign with a heel injury but he’s expected to return to training in three weeks.
