The 19-year-old defender has been on the radar of several clubs, including Arsenal, and is seen as one of the more promising young players in England’s youth setup.

Chilwell impressed in eight appearances on loan with Huddersfield during the 2015-16 season, prompting Liverpool to push for the youngster’s signature.

Arsenal’s $5.1 million bid for the young defender last summer was denied by the Foxes, with Leicester looking for Chilwell to consider re-signing at the King Power Stadium.
