Liverpool are interested in signing Arsenal target and Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell, according to the Express.
The Gunners have been plotting a move for the highly-rated defender for quite some time but Liverpool wants to hijack a move for the young man by taking advantage of the uncertainty surrounding Arsenal’s managerial position.
Arsene Wenger who is expected to pursue a move for the defender is yet to decide whether he will sign a new deal at the Emirates or not.
Chilwell is being tipped to become one of the finest full-backs in the country and Liverpool, as well as Arsenal, are keen to snap him up. However, Liverpool believes they have an edge in the race to sign the young man because any interest from Arsenal could be dropped if Wenger leaves his position at the end of the season.
The Reds are now determined to make a move for the young man who has started just three Premier League games this season.
Leicester City will fight to keep hold of Chilwell if they manage to avoid relegation this season but Liverpool are prepared to test their resolve by making a bid in the region of £10m for his services.
Considering the defender’s huge potential, I expect Arsenal to make a move for his services regardless of whether Wenger stays or not. He could turn out to become a great investment in the future.
