Chelsea have not followed-up rejected lowball offer for Drinkwater

Chelsea are preparing to table a bid of at least £25million for Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater over the next week, according to a report. The player himself is interested in a move and has told the club about his desires but Leicester are willing to hold on for a fee in the range of £40m ($51m), which the Champions received for the transfer of Nemanja Matic. The Blues were thwarted with an initial bid for the 27-year-old, with Chelsea keeping an interest in the midfield general since last season and are in dire need for cover owing to a bevy of suspensions and injuries.

The Foxes have already lost one influential man to Stamford Bridge in recent times when N'Golo Kante swapped life at the then Premier League champions for a move to London and the Midlands side will be desperate to avoid a repeat situation. It is understood that the England global himself is interested in a move to Stamford Bridge and the move could be finalised in the coming days. The same paper report that Leicester do not want to sell one of their star players and consider the central midfielder to be worth much more than Chelsea are now offering.

"You know when you have good players that there might be interest from other clubs but I wouldn't sleep at night if all the scenarios that you (the media) put to me happened".

Drinkwater featured in Europe's premier club competition last season after helping Leicester win the 2015/16 Premier League title.

With ongoing speculation around the future of another star player in Riyad Mahrez, Leicester followers will be counting down the days until the transfer window closes hoping that their big players remain in place at the King Power.
