Chelsea are allegedly poised to make a move for Real Madrid loanee Sergio Reguilon after Leicester City demanded a world record sum for Ben Chilwell.
Reguilon enjoyed an excellent campaign on loan at Sevilla from Real Madrid and was named the Spanish top-flight’s best left-back.
Then 23-year-old is a rising star and Everton have already attempted to lure the Spaniard to the Premier League.
The Toffees bid £18 million for Reguilon last week, but a sports TV channel Sky Sports claim the Blues are set to trump that offer.
Frank Lampard has made landing a left-back a top priority this summer, but the Blues have struggled to land his top target, Chilwell.
The Foxes want over £80million for the England international, more than what Manchester United paid for centre-half Harry Maguire a year ago.
He is the world’s most expensive defender and Chelsea have already forked out a combined £90 million on Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech.
Reguilon is highly rated at Real Madrid, but the La Liga champions already have a wealth of variants in his position.
The full-back is expected to be one of the players pinpointed for sale so Real can balance their books.
Chelsea are expected to continue spending as Frank aims to completely revamp his squad this summer.
Bayern Leverkusen playmaker Kai Havertz has also been linked, while Frank also wants a replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga who was dropped for the final Premier League match and the FA Cup final.
