Chilwell backed to make Chelsea title contenders as Burley calls for left-back alongside Werner

The former Blues star is delighted to see a deal in place for the Germany star and feels a solid defensive addition would tick another important box

Chelsea must be considered serious title contenders for 2020-21 if they are able to add a big-money deal for Ben Chilwell to one already being lined up for Timo Werner, says Craig Burley.

The Blues have agreed to trigger the £54 million (€60m/$68m) release clause which will free the prolific Germany international striker from his contract at RB Leipzig.

Liverpool had appeared to be leading the chase for Werner, while Manchester United have also been credited with interest, but the 24-year-old seems destined to head for Stamford Bridge.
