Last week, Chelsea completed the signing of Leicester City’s left-back, Ben Chilwell for £50 million.

The 23-year-old England international signed a five-year deal which will keep him at Stamford Bridge until the summer of 2025.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard said he knows him very well and is delighted to work with him.

“With Ben Chilwell, he is a player I know very well,” he told the club’s website.

“He has been pretty much England’s first-choice left-back now in recent times. Great qualities in terms of how he can join in, he is athletic, his physicality, the way he plays and the quality of his left foot.

“So for us in terms of how he can help out on the left side, attack-wise and defensively, which of course is always first and foremost, I am excited to work with him so I think he is a great addition. At 23 years of age, it is a really positive one for us.”

With Chilwell’s arrival, Chelsea are likely to sell one of their left-backs with Emerson more likely to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.
