The Foxes are reportedly holding out for a fee of £30 million as Antonio Conte Chelsea seeks to bolster his midfield ranks following the sale of Nemanja Matic
Chelsea are looking to complete the signing of Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater, Goal can confirm.
Having sold Nemanja Matic to Manchester United for £40 million, Antonio Conte is keen to bolster his midfield ranks before the end of the transfer window.
The sales of both Matic and Nathaniel Chalobah have left the Premier League champions short of options in the middle of the park, despite the arrival of Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco.
And Conte is keen to secure England international Drinkwater as soon as possible, with the Blues kicking off their title defence against Burnley on August 12.
The former Italy boss has also looked into the possibility of bringing in Bayern Munich”s Renato Sanches, but ambitious Serie A outfit AC Milan appear to be his preferred destination.
Leicester, meanwhile, are reluctant to sell Drinkwater – 12 months on from offloading N’Golo Kante to Stamford Bridge – and reports suggest that the King Power Stadium outfit have placed a £30m price tag on the former Manchester United trainee.
Drinkwater played a key role as Leicester surprisingly won the Premier League title in 2015-16, but struggled for form last season as he contributed just one goal and three assists in all competitions.
