According to a recent report from Daily Express, Leicester City have identified Southampton defender Ryan Bertrand as a potential replacement for Ben Chilwell if he ends up leaving to join Chelsea.
Bertrand has been a consistent rock for the Saints in the last few years, but with the Foxes looking set to compete in either the Champions League or Europa League next season, the expectation is that he would seriously consider a move to join Brendan Rodgers’ men if an offer came in.
There are plenty of ifs and buts involved in this one, and really, it all comes down to whether or not Chelsea are serious about making a move for Chilwell. The England international is clearly going to be the subject of a big bid if Frank Lampard is committed to getting a deal over the finish line, but in regards to Bertrand, it’d be one hell of a coup for Leicester.
