Arsenal are planning a daring raid on Leicester City for their promising left-back Ben Chilwell the ​Metro report.


Arsene Wenger has grown increasingly frustrated with Kieran Gibbs' sub-par performances this season and he is willing to boot him out of the Emirates Stadium exit door.

The defender has slipped down the pecking order due to the irrepressible form of Nacho Monreal and now the North London outfit are eyeing up potential replacements.


Chilwell is on the Gunners shortlist and the marauding full-back is viewed as one of English football's most prodigious talents. 


The 19-year-old is packed with promise and, despite being offered a new deal, he has failed to pledge his future to the high-flying Foxes.

Liverpool and Chelsea are also keeping close tabs on the England Under-20 international so a bidding war could be sparked for his services.


Swooping for Chilwell could be the start of a busy summer for Arsene Wenger as he looks to reinvigorate a team that failed to keep up in the title race.
