Leicester warn Chelsea they won't sell Danny Drinkwater this summer

Leicester warn Chelsea they won't sell Danny Drinkwater this summer

The Mirror reported on Friday that Chelsea manager Antonio Conte was "seriously interested" in the midfielder, who won the Premier League with Leicester.

Conte has already signed four new recruits so far with goalkeeper Willy Caballero, centre-back Antonio Rudiger, midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko and striker Alvaro Morata all arriving in recent weeks.

Chelsea made the freaky decision to sell Serbia worldwide Nemanja Matic to title rivals Manchester United in a £40m deal last week.

On Tuesday, Chelsea's interest in Danny Drinkwater has been confirmed by Simon Johnson of the Evening Standard, usually a very solid source for news from West London. That aforementioned interest in Drinkwater, meanwhile, was said to have intensified after Chelsea were rebuffed in their pursuit of Bayern Munich teenager Renato Sanches.

Drinkwater has a strong relationship with N'Golo Kante from their title-winning season playing together at Leicester.

"He's not a Matic that's for sure, he's more of a creative sort of player", he told talkSPORT when asked if Drinkwater would fit the bill under Conte. "Is that because Kante is so good it doesn't matter who plays next to him?"

"Danny Drinkwater is a odd one".

"I think he's capable of making that step up. But he's definitely got the ability".

Their odds of Drinkwater staying at Leicester for next season are 6/4.

The champions are willing to offer around £30m but Shakespeare says the club don't have to sell.

It has also been suggested that Chelsea initially wanted to sign both Kante and Drinkwater in an ambitious double deal last summer.
