Chelsea consider Marc Cucurella as alternative to Ben Chilwell

Chelsea are interested in acquiring a new left-back this summer and have been heavily linked with a move for Leicester City's Ben Chilwell. However, reports suggest that the London outfit have reportedly decided on an alternative signing. It is expected that Chelsea will be made to pay over the mark for Chilwell as he's one of Leicester's prized assets and they are not ready to let him leave the King Power. Reports have suggested that Chelsea must make a bid of around £70million to sign Chilwell and this valuation has forced the Blues to consider alternatives that could be acquired for a far lesser fee. Therefore, Chelsea have reportedly put interest in Getafe left-back Marc Cucurella. The left-back joined Getafe on loan from Barcelona last summer and was outrightly signed by Geta...

Chelsea want €40m for Emerson Palmieri

Chelsea are ready to sell Emerson Palmieri but only if the valuation of €40m is met as reports of interest from the likes of Juventus and Inter Milan continue to circulate. A report by The Sun suggested that Chelsea are considering a summer swoop for Leicester defender Ben Chilwell and it is believed that he could be a replacement for Emerson. Therefore, the idea might be to offload the Italian and use some of the funds to ensure a move for Chilwell who is valued at £50m. Emerson, 25, is open to a return to Serie A according to Calciomercato although he's happy in London. Therefore, it would take around €40m to convince Chelsea to let go of the left-back as they are not desperate to see him leave.

Chilwell has no regrets for not joining Liverpool

Leicester defender Ben Chilwell has stated that he doesn't have any regrets for not joining Liverpool. It can be recalled that the young English star was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool in the summer of 2016. However, the left-back who was 19 at the time chose to remain with the Foxes. Meanwhile, current Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers also admitted that he was interested in Chilwell when he was Liverpool boss. Chilwell, who was speaking ahead of his side's Premier League visit to Anfield said: 'I was 17 at the time. My agent was the one dealing with it all, talking to Liverpool and Leicester about the situation. 'At the time, I was trying to break into the under-21 team at Leicester so I was just focused on getting into that and progressing into the first team here. 'De...
