Leicester scouting left-backs with Ben Chilwell set for £50million exit

 

Alan Nixon is the source who is very well informed on Leicester transfer dealings

Surprised we didn’t buy one last summer ...had to ‘beg’ Fuchs to give us another year .... tbh, if we can get a top class replacement, he is one player I can live with leaving.  But I’m a bit worried about his close relationship with madders and how that may affect JM wanting to stay

Should get Alex Telles in January from Porto, would cost less than £50m and is probably a better player

Missed a trick with Kierney!.. 

Better player than Chilwell who has been pretty poor this season. 

Can't Justin play LB?. 

Thought he could. 

 

Tierney

Mate of mine said we had scouts at the Forest game yesterday. Could be routine, but they do have that Joe Worrall. Is he a left back :dunno:

£50m exit to who though?

I've been told the above information as well.

 

But was told the club hope to drive the price up with. United, Chelsea once their ban ends, man city and potentially even liverpool all keen on him.

 

Club are scouting Europe wide for a replacement, think we may have missed a trick with not getting Tierney from Celtic for the money.

 

But the club feel there's value for money out there and that Chilwell isn't keen on staying long term and feels he can go earn big money elsewhere and win trophies even if he's not 1st choice.

Hmmm, well his head did seem to be elsewhere against Liverpool. Pull your head in and show how good you are instead of doing a Mahrez!

Personally I think we saw a massive improvement between 1 season and another a year or so back when he admitted he did a lot of work over the summer.

 

But I do wonder if he's reached his ceiling. He's mobile and fit enough to play the modern full back role, however his right foot is almost only for standing on, he is still suspect positionally defensively and his final ball is often poor, even wasteful.

 

I certainly feel that as a left back he would be harder to replace than Harry was as a centre back. But now it's being reported elsewhere it certainly seems that the club feel he will move on.

 

Whilst some will not like it, I like the fact the club are planning ahead and the model seems to be 1 big sale every year to keep us on a even footing in terms off FFP.

If he were to leave I hope it doesn’t unsettle Maddison. 

Or gray. Football friends

Same fee as Maguire please. Is he worth it? Absolutely not. Are the 'big' English clubs stupid enough to pay it? Absolutely.
