Chelsea will target moves for Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell and Ajax attacker Hakim Ziyech this summer, according to a report.

Chelsea will reportedly attempt to sign Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell and Ajax attacker Hakim Ziyech in this summer's transfer window.

The Blues are allegedly still trying to bring a new forward to the club before Friday's deadline, although the bulk of the club's upcoming business is expected to take place at the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

According to ESPN, Chilwell and Ziyech have been identified by the club as leading summer targets with head coach Frank Lampard looking to rebuild the squad at Stamford Bridge.

Chilwell, who has also been linked with Manchester United and Manchester City, is expected to be England's first-choice left-back at Euro 2020 having developed into one of Leicester's most important players.

Ziyech, meanwhile, played a key role in Ajax winning a league and cup double during the 2018-19 campaign in addition to reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League.

The 26-year-old has again been in impressive form this season, scoring eight times and registering 21 assists in 29 appearances for his Amsterdam club in all competitions.
