Ben Chilwell news

Foxes won’t sell Chilwell in January


Leicester City will reportedly turn down the option to sell defender Ben Chilwell, should the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United make an approach.

The England international has been in stunning form for club and country this term and he recently bagged three assists for the Three Lions in a Euro 2020 qualifier.

As a result, there has been much speculation over his next challenge but Standard Sport claims that the Foxes have no intention to sanction the player’s sale in the New Year.

United have relied on Ashley Young and Brandon Williams on the left side of the defence this term with Luke Shaw struggling with muscular injury concerns.

As such, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to recruit another left-sided defender with experience and Chilwell perfect fits the club’s requirements for the long-term.

Elsewhere, Marcos Alonso and Emerson has remained inconsistent for the Blues despite their strong start to the campaign and Frank Lampard is open to working with Chilwell.

Chilwell’s current deal with the Foxes expires only in the summer of 2024 and the club are in a strong position to decline bids in the next few transfer windows.

Christian Pulisic news

Pulisic in doubt for Man City clash


Chelsea attacker Christian Pulisic is reportedly a major doubt for the Premier League game against Manchester City as he has yet to recover from a hip problem.

The USA international sustained the injury during the 2-0 league win over Crystal Palace before the international break and that saw him withdraw from the national team squad for the Nations League games.

According to The Sun, the 22-year-old has not recovered from the injury setback and he is now facing a race against time as he looks to prove his fitness for the Cityzens clash.

Pulisic has been in fascinating form over the past month and he has been the standout performer for the Blues in the Premier League in the previous three matches where he has scored five goals.

In his probable absence, Callum Hudson-Odoi could feature on the left side of the attack but the England international needs to up his game, having struggled for form with club and country of late.

Non-league striker destined for Premier League side?
Football Transfer Centre


Leicester City and Watford are both monitoring the progress of 22-year-old striker Ronald Sobowale, who currently plays for non-league club the Walton Casuals. According to a report in the Daily Mail, scouts have been deployed to check up on Sobowale’s recent progress.

The striker is currently on a trial with Middlesbrough but it is the Premier League that the player could end up, having already been in discussions with Watford and Leicester City representatives.  The striker hopes to follow the success of Jamie Vardy, who too came through the ranks outside of England’s top divisions. 

Interestingly, Sobowale is the cousin of Austria and Bayern Munich legend David Alaba and has been prolific in front of goal for his team so far this season.

With Leicester City seeking a potential backup for Jamie Vardy, the cut-price 22-year-old could be available for just £200,000 and thus would not break the bank for the Foxes.

Sobowale had been linked with a transfer to Sheffield Wednesday just last season, but a deal failed to materialise.

James Maddison news

Maddison set for Leicester City deal?


England international James Maddison will reportedly sign a new contract with the Foxes in the coming weeks, amidst interest from Premier League giants Man Utd. The Leicester City creative midfielder has been one of the top flight’s bright sparks so far this campaign, with his club now desperate to tie the player to a long-term new contract.

Since Maddison’s arrival from Norwich City, the midfielder has made his debut for England and has shone in the Premier League, helping Leicester City to the top half of the league table.

According to the Daily Mail, Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to add creativity to his midfield and sees Maddison as the perfect acquisition for the January transfer window, but the price tag of £65 million could scare off the Old Trafford outfit.

It is also understood that Tottenham and Arsenal also hold a long-term interest in Maddison, while French giants Paris St Germain have deployed scouts to monitor Leicester City games in recent times. 

Maddison has three years remaining on his current contract.

Chilwell to Chelsea in January?


Chelsea are deemed to be leading the race to sign defender Ben Chilwell from Leicester City when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.

The Blues are presently banned from signing any players until July 1 but they are hopeful of reducing the punishment by six months after their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

According to The Mail, both United and Chelsea are looking into signing a new left-sided defender but the latter are leading the race to sign the England international.

Emerson and Marcos Alonso have been the preferred picks for the left-back role under Frank Lampard this term and the former has regularly got the nod for the starting XI.

Still, Lampard is understood to be eyeing a more attack-minded left-back, who can also be effective in the defence and Chilwell has been identified as the top target.

Leicester City have generally turned down the opportunity to cash in on their star players at the midway stage of the campaign and it remains to be seen whether they are tempted to sanction Chilwell’s sale, should the right offer come by.
