CAIRO-27 August 2020: Chelsea have announced on Wednesday that they have reached an agreement with Leicester City to sign their English defender Ben Chilwell.
"I am delighted to be joining Chelsea at this very exciting time for the club. I’m looking forward to being a part of this young, dynamic squad led by Frank Lampard as we challenge for honours next season." The English defender said after signing the contract.
Chilwell, who signed a five-year contract with the Blues, is Chelsea's third high-profile signing after Timo Werner who joined from Leipzig and Hakim Ziyech who joined from Ajax.
He added "I can’t wait to get started and hopefully it won’t be long before we’re playing in front of the Chelsea fans at Stamford Bridge."
The English defender has been sensational for Leicester City, having made over 120 appearances for the club since his debut in 2015.
"Ben brings plenty of top-level experience playing in the Premier League, Champions League and at international level, despite his young age." Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said after the defender's presentation as a new Chelsea player.
