Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell is set to complete the long-awaited move to Chelsea in the next 48 hours.

According to The Telegraph, Chelsea medical staff were satisfied with the results of a scan on the 23-year-old’s heel injury.

Chilwell will sign a five-year deal worth around £190,000 a week with Chelsea who will reportedly pay Leicester City £50m plus bonuses for the England International.

Chilwell joined Leicester City 11 years ago as a 12-year-old, went through the ranks at youth level to make it to the senior team and become an England International.

His arrival certainly means either Marcos Alonso or Emerson will leave Chelsea before the end of the season.

Brazilian is the most likely to depart after falling below Alonso in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.
