Blues fans will love this as £75 million Premier League star backed to sign with Chelsea this summer

Joe Cole believes Ben Chilwell ‘fits the ethos’ that Chelsea are looking to recruit this summer.

The Blues are actively seeking to improve the back-line in the summer transfer window and add a new left-back to the side, which has meant that Porto star Alex Telles has been the clubs number one transfer target for months now.

But reports have claimed that PSG are closing in on a deal to take Telles to the French League for a fee of around £35 million, which is alot more than Chelsea wanted to pay.

And that means that Chelsea may have to turn their attentions to the possible signing of Ben Chilwell, who is easily regarded as one of the finest left-backs in Europe right now, but could cost anywhere between £60-80 million to sign in the summer.

Now, amid the speculation, ex-Blues star Cole has opened up and claimed that Chilwell would be foolish to turn down a move to work with Lampard.

‘Similar to Werner, he fits the ethos – he is young, he’s hungry, he’s explosive and athletic,’ former Chelsea winger turned BT Sport pundit Cole said.

‘I think he’s got a lot of talent, if he comes to Chelsea, working with the group there – in Brendan [Rodgers] he’s got a great manager and a great team up at Leicester. But Chelsea’s a step up from Leicester.

‘I know they are sitting above Chelsea in the table at the moment but having the opportunity to work with Frank and improve would be immense for him.

‘He’s got the left-back position for England in his hands at the moment.

‘My advice would be to keep performing, keep consistent and if he does do that he can be England’s left-back and, if he does come to Chelsea, Chelsea’s left-back for many years. He’s a terrific player, a real talent.’

    Ben Chilwell might be good but David Alaba is world class and the best left back anywhere in the world.
    Chelsea should move for him instead… he’s even less costly compared to Chilwell’s valuation and Munchen are open to trading on him this summer.
