Is rising star Ben Chilwell set to become the latest Leicester gem?

Leicester City may have yet another battle on their hands to keep one of their star players.

Ben Chilwell has been in impressive form this season and was recently rewarded for that by England manager Gareth Southgate.

Chilwell was handed his international debut against Switzerland, replacing Danny Rose at his own King Power Stadium.

His appearance for the Three Lions senior side represents an impressive rise for Chilwell.

Still only 21, he is rapidly becoming one of the Premier League’s better full-backs.

He certainly looks to have nailed down his place for the Foxes after a battle with Christian Fuchs.

His development is exciting fans of the Midlands club, but the better he becomes, the more likely it is that Leicester will, yet again, have to fend off bigger clubs wanting to sign one of their players.

The Foxes have had mixed success with that over the last few seasons.

N’Golo Kante left for Chelsea, and Riyad Mahrez finally joined Manchester City this summer.

But Jamie Vardy remained with the club, and Harry Maguire ended recent speculation by committing to a new deal.

Chilwell the next Maguire?

It was a huge coup for Leicester to successfully negotiate a new contract for Maguire.

He is now highly coveted after his exploits with England at the World Cup and great form with the Foxes beforehand.

There’s every chance Chilwell could follow in Maguire’s footsteps now he too is involved with England.

International football draws more attention to players. Although no major tournaments are on the horizon, potential gem Chilwell may find himself under the watchful eye of some of the Premier League’s top clubs – if he continues his fine form, of course.
