Chelsea set to make second bid for Drinkwater

According to Matt Law's report in the Telegraph, Chelsea have yet to follow-up on a rejected £15 million bid made "earlier in the window" for Leicester City for midfielder Danny Drinkwater, who's now sidelined with a thigh injury.

Cesar Azpiliceuta has joined Conte in putting pressure on the Chelsea board to complete further business before the summer window closes.

The story also says that Drinkwater himself would be "interested" in a move to Stamford Bridge, but accepts that he would face competitive for a starting berth in the Blues' line-up.

In case you didn't know.

Drinkwater would also improve their mandate in the homegrown segment, with the Blues severely lacking in that department following the departure of John Terry and others.

The 27-year-old is understood to be open to a move to Chelsea but Leicester are unlikely to accept a bid of £20m for Drinkwater.

Chelsea are looking to add some quality and depth to their squad and Drinkwater will certainly add some experience to the midfield.

Drinkwater and Kante were key figures in the Foxes winning the Premier League two seasons ago as they partnered each other in a midfield that outplayed the rest of the division and the England worldwide is believed to be interested in a reunion with his former teammate. Such a strong interest in Danny Drinkwater comes as a result of Nemanja Matic's sale to Manchester United.

Danny Drinkwater is certainly a solid midfielder and will always put in consistent performances when given the chance.

Chelsea are set to light up the transfer window in the next week with a stunning £130M transfer shopping spree, according to the Express.
