BREAKING: Chelsea complete the signing of Ben Chilwell

Chelsea have officially confirmed the signing of defender Ben Chilwell from Leicester in a £50million deal.

The Stamford Bridge outfit have been keen to recruit another left back this summer and identified the 23-year-old as their primary target for that position.

Chilwell’s arrival on a five-year deal comes during a remarkable summer of spending which has also seen both Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech snapped up, with German starlet Kai Havertz closing on a switch to join them.

Chilwell has penned a long-term contact at Stamford Bridge and will become a crucial part of Frank Lampard’s attempts to push for silverware next season.

The 23-year-old had missed the final five games of the last campaign with a heel problem, but his new club are believed to have held no long-term concerns over the setback.
