Can you score 20/20 on this Premier League quiz? Starting off easy, who is the top scorer in the Premier League this season?

So far this season, Chilwell has featured 23 times in the Premier League, scoring two goals and providing three assists, averaging a WhoScored match rating of 6.97.

The 23-year-old also enjoyed a fine season last year, providing four assists over his 36 Premier League appearances, averaging an impressive match rating of 7.04.

As a result of his impressive performances, interest has been high in the left-back, with Fabrizio Romano recently reporting that Chelsea are in talks with the Foxes over a potential move for the 23-year-old England international.

Romano claims that Chilwell is keen to join the Blues, and is aware that Frank Lampard would very much like to make the defender a part of his Chelsea side next season.

TIF Thoughts…

Chilwell has been an important part of Leicester’s defence over the past couple of seasons, helping his side climb to third place in the Premier League table this term, five points above fourth-placed Chelsea.

As such, selling such an important part of their defence would not be a particularly wise move, especially if the club manages to secure Champions League football for next season.

However, with reports suggesting that Chilwell would actually like a move to Chelsea, as well as the fact that Leicester would likely request a great deal of money for the £36 million-rated left-back, now could actually be the perfect opportunity for the Foxes to sell the player.
