'No argument' - Ben Chilwell transfer saga addressed by Leicester City and Chelsea old boy

Chelsea have the power to lure Ben Chilwell away from Leicester City, according to Frank Sinclair.

Sinclair, who played for both clubs, has been discussing the ongoing transfer speculation linking Chilwell with a big-money move away from the King Power Stadium this summer.

The England international is reported to be a target for Chelsea, with Manchester City also credited with an interest in the left-back.

Asked about the prospect of Chilwell swapping the East Midlands for West London, Sinclair told GentingBet: "It's a difficult one, obviously, because Leicester have had a terrific season and you'd argue that they having a better season than Chelsea with the position they're in in the league.

"Does that make them a bigger football club? I don't necessarily think so. I spent eight years in the first team of Chelsea and, and six years in the first team at Leicester City as well, and I think there's no argument that Chelsea is a bigger football club.

"That's why Leicester City have lost the likes of (N'Golo) Kante and Danny Drinkwater to Chelsea with them arguably being Leicester City's best players at the time when they came to Chelsea and that shows the power of the club.
