Leicester City's Ben Chilwell is tempted by a move to Chelsea but is not forcing a transfer away from the Foxes, according to a report.

Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell is supposedly interested in a move to Chelsea amid speculation regarding a potential summer transfer.

Blues manager Frank Lampard is said to be in the market for a new left-back ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, and Chilwell has been persistently linked with a move to Stamford Brdge.

The 23-year-old has enjoyed an impressive campaign with Leicester - registering two goals and three assists from 23 Premier League appearances.

According to The Mirror, Lampard remains firmly keen on a deal for Chilwell, and the player himself is tempted by a move to the English capital.

However, the report also claims that Chilwell has not informed Leicester of any desire to leave, and the Foxes would likely command a hefty figure for the England international.

It also remains to be seen how Chelsea's transfer dealings will be impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, and Porto's Alex Telles has been touted as a potential cut-price alternative.

Chilwell still has another four years left to run on his Leicester contract.
