Chelsea fans don’t want Ben Chilwell at the club after the Blues were linked with a move for the Leicester City defender.
According to The Athletic, if the club’s transfer ban is overturned in the next few days, Frank Lampard’s side will make the player their top target.
Is Ben Chilwell worth £50m?
Valencia defender Jose Gaya is thought to be second choice for the English manager, should they not land the Leicester man.
The west London side have also been linked with a move for Algerian right-back Youcef Atal in the winter window, with reports (via The Metro) claiming the club are eyeing a £35m move.
It seems Lampard wants to replace Marcos Alonso, who hasn’t featured since the draw against Ajax, and Emerson Palmieri, who isn’t thought to have a long-term future at the club.
However, fans were less than impressed after links with Chilwell as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the west London faithful:
Jose Gaya over Chilwell and a striker that compliments the way we play.

Atall all the way

Youcef Atal is such a baller.

Atal, Grimaldo and Telles are better choices for less money!
