(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Manchester City have joined Chelsea in the race to sign Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell, according to The Telegraph.
Blues boss Frank Lampard is keen on signing the 23-year-old but Pep Guardiola could be set to rival the west London club once the transfer window reopens this summer.
Guardiola has played Benjamin Mendy the most at left-back, with Oleksandr Zinchenko also filling in, but the Spaniard is keen to strengthen the position with the capture of Chilwell.
However, the Foxes are said to value Chilwell higher than they did Harry Maguire, who was sold to Manchester United for £80million last summer.
Leicester want around £85m for their academy product, although reports have suggested that Chelsea believe the coronavirus crisis will help lower his price-tag this summer.
The report goes on to suggest that while City are often reluctant to make record-breaking deals like their rivals, they would be willing to compete in the market for England star Chilwell.
