Spurs fans react to reported interest in Ben Chilwell

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked to a rival Premier League player this week, and fans have been discussing the possibility of seeing him in north London next term.

According to the Daily Star, Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell is a target for Jose Mourinho this summer and could cost £50m amidst interest from other Premier League rivals such as Chelsea and Manchester City.

Currently, the Portuguese chief has Ben Davies and Ryan Sessegnon in the role with Danny Rose out of loan, although he’s not expected to have much of a future at the club.

Both centre-backs Jan Vertonghen and Japhet Tanganga have been tried out at left-back, too, so it’s quite possibly a position that needs strengthening.

Would Ben Chilwell be an upgrade on Ben Davies?

Yes!

Yes!

No!

Here’s how fans have been reacting to the news on social media…

There were plenty of supporters against the idea of landing the 23-year-old at the end of the season, blasting him for being a “terrible footballer” as well as an “average” and “overhyped” English player.

Chilwell has played 23 times in the Premier League this term, scoring twice and has provided three assists whilst he is also averaging 2 clearances, 1.6 tackles, 1.2 key passes and 1.1 interceptions per game via WhoScored.

Since his rise to stardom for the Foxes, the young defender has gone on to clinch 11 caps for Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions.

Valued at £45m by Transfermarkt, the left-back is expected to cost at least £50m as per the Daily Star report already mentioned, which had got fans questioning whether or not Daniel Levy would pay up for him.

Spurs broke their club-record transfer fee last summer, signing Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon for £55m, and given his struggles this season, it puts a lot of pressure on the chairman to get the next big-money splash correct.
