With reports yesterday of a rejected £7million offer for young left back Ben Chilwell, it’s said Liverpool will not meet Leicester’s £10million valuation.

The reports were pretty much everywhere yesterday, with the common consensus seeming to be that Liverpool offered £5million up front for the 19 year old left back, with add on’s totally another £2million.

That was rejected out of hand by Leicester, who are said to value him in the region of £10million given his potential.

Chilwell of course has debuted for Leicester, making three appearances in the domestic cups for us, but he’s yet to play in the Premier League itself – instead gaining Championship experience whilst out on loan with Huddersfield, and taking in seven starts and one substitute appearance.

Initially it was being reported that Liverpool were weighing up a second offer, but the Liverpool Echo are reporting now that Jurgen Klopp will turn his attentions to others as given Chilwell’s experience so far, £10million is too steep a price.

With one year left on his contract, surely we’ll be tying him down for longer though in the very near future.
