Tottenham fans react to reports of a move for Ben Chilwell

The Leicester man looks like being the centre of attention for some clubs this summer.

Tottenham are reportedly leading the chase to sign Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell, according to the Daily Star, and supporters have been reacting on Twitter.

Jose Mourinho will enter the transfer market ahead of next season and a defender or two will almost certainly be on his shortlist.

It is thought that it could take £50 million to prise the England international away from the King Power Stadium.

Tottenham will also face competition for his signature from Chelsea and Manchester City.

A left-back does look like a necessity for Mourinho. Ben Davies has struggled with injuries, whilst Danny Rose was allowed to join Newcastle on loan.

That has seen Japhet Tanganga and Jan Vertonghen both fill in at left-back and a new addition would be ideal.

It would seem that some supporters aren’t overly keen on the idea of Chilwell arriving, however.

A quick glance towards social media sees Spurs fans dismissing the links, with many feeling he isn’t worth the money.

A few do think he boasts quality but those people are outweighed by the ones who don’t want him anywhere near Tottenham.

The 23-year-old has been in decent form for Leicester during 2019/20 with the Foxes on the cusp of Champions League football.

Chilwell has played 118 times for the East Midlands-based club and surely Tottenham could do a lot worse.

Here is a selection of tweets from Tottenham supporters following links to Chilwell.
