Opinion: Leicester should hold firm for the big bucks following latest defender update

Leicester City are picking up under new manager Brendan Rodgers, and could well find themselves the best of the rest outside the top six come seasons end.

The Foxes have been back to their exciting best under the former Liverpool manager, and it would appear he has brought the magic touch with him back to the Premier League following his spell with Celtic.

However, with good form and quality football will come admiring glances towards some of your star players, and one man who has been catching the eye has been left back Ben Chilwell.

Indeed, today has seen Chilwell linked with a £50m move to the likes of Atletico Madrid and Barcelona, and it’s easy to see why given his displays.

However, we here at the Tavern feel that £50m is a bit of an insult for the Foxes, and we feel if they do sell, they should be holding out for the mega-money fees clubs are now choosing to pay if they want to capture the top talent in the world.

Chilwell has proved his quality already, and he has made the step up to international level with ease as well.

Leicester have well and truly unearthed another gem in the fullback positions for England, and while the money will be tempting if the Spanish giants do move, they should be holding out and getting the maximum for their best talents.

Chilwell has so much to give and so many years ahead of him at the top, and it should be a case of put up, or shut up, for the onlooking clubs across Europe.
