Barca, Atletico ‘enter race for Ben Chilwell’
Leicester City full-back Ben Chilwell is wanted by La Liga pair Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, according to a report.
The 22-year-old has impressed for the Foxes since breaking into their first team two seasons ago and he is now a regular for England at international level.
Chilwell has been strongly tipped to join Manchester City in the summer, but The Sun suggests that the Citizens face serious competition from foreign clubs.
Barca and Atletico have been tracking the Leicester academy product since last October, it is claimed, and they both sent representatives to Wembley to watch him up close against Czech Republic last week
Chilwell is considered a long-term successor to Filipe Luis at Atleti, while Barcelona require competition for Jordi Alba.
City do not need to sell the one-time Huddersfield Town loanee, though, so it is expected to take an offer of more than £50m to tempt them into parting ways.
