Chelsea’s transfer activity has seemingly attracted the attention of Manchester City, who are reportedly readying a bid for Ben Chilwell ahead of the summer window.
The Chelsea boss is spoilt for choice with his options in attack with Raheem Sterling, Kai Havertz, Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic, Mykhaylo Mudryk, Hakim Ziyech, Noni Madueke, Armando Broja, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and David Datro Fofana now fighting for starting spots.
Marc Cucurella has also taken on a permanent role on the left side of defence while young talent Lewis Hall has impressed when given a chance.
Joao Cancelo’s surprise loan exit in January has left a gaping hole in Pep Guardiola’s squad and the Spaniard is said to be keen on signing Chilwell.
Chelsea signed Chilwell for £50million back in the summer of 2020 and would likely seek a similar price in a sale.
Hall and Cucurella have shared the minutes at left-back during Chilwell’s injury lay-off with the former establishing himself as a favourite under Potter.
But Chilwell would have a clear route to regular starts at City following Cancelo’s exit with the Portugal international reportedly set to leave on a permanent basis.
Sergio Gomez is the only natural left-back in Guardiola’s squad but is out of favour with the Spaniard with Rico Lewis and Nathan Ake filling in for the time being.
