Leicester City reportedly have no intention of selling Ben Chilwell this summer despite reported interest from Chelsea and Manchester City.

Leicester City are reportedly confident that they will be able to keep hold of Ben Chilwell this summer, despite reported interest from Chelsea and Manchester City.

Chelsea are understood to have identified the England international as their number one target at left-back, where they are looking for reinforcements due to Frank Lampard's misgivings over Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri.

Man City have also been credited with an interest as they consider bolstering their full-back options to provide extra cover for the injury-prone Benjamin Mendy.

However, Sky Sports News reports that Leicester have no intention of selling Chilwell even if either of his potential suitors table a bid of £50m.

The Foxes do not believe that an alternative would be easy to source, and are also wary of selling below their valuation of the 23-year-old as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Chilwell, who has played 28 times for Leicester this season, still has four years remaining on his contract at the King Power Stadium.
