Now that the Jonas Hector transfer is becoming less and less possible each day, Liverpool are in a desperate search for left-back.
The Reds had initially put forward a £7m bid for the young Foxes defender, who spent the majority of Leicester's title winning year out on loan with Huddersfield Town, but club representatives of the Premier League champions have turned it down, deeming it too low.
The 19-year-old left-back from Bedford hasn't made his English Premier League debut yet, but is well talked about in youth circles of football.
The name of Hull City left back, 22 year old Andy Robertson, has been thrown into the mix as a potential alternative target if the Chilwell deal is not done.
Reportedly, these are the main concerns for Liverpool fans, as they are eagerly awaiting the new acquisitions of their club.
Hull however have said that none of their players have been the subject of any transfer offers, and it is not in their interest to sell players as they look to strengthen for the Premier League season ahead.
The likelihood is Robertson could be available for less than Leicester are demanding for Chilwell so you can see why Klopp could be tempted to make a move for the former Dundee United full-back this summer.
Manager Jurgen Klopp is eager to have most, if not all, of his business done by the time his pre-season schedule is in full swing given the importance of the fitness work his players will be undertaking.
