Arsenal closing in on Leicester starlet Ben Chilwell before transfer deadline

Arsenal are believed to be lining up one last push to sign young Leicester full-back Ben Chilwell before the close of the transfer window today, according to the Metro.

The 19-year-old is being lauded as one of the country’s finest young talents, and the Gunners have held a long standing interest in his signature, having already had one £3m offer rejected by the Foxes.

However, the report states that the Gunners are still keen to do business before the transfer window slams shut on Monday evening, and will lodge a new £4m offer to push the deal through.

Arsenal chief scout Steve Rowley has been keeping a close watch on the player’s progress whilst on loan with Huddersfield and has sent a series of glowing reports back to manager Arsene Wenger.

Chelsea are also thought to be weighing up their own move for the teenager ahead of the summer window, but Arsenal are keen to do business early and snap him up now.
