Chelsea are reportedly prepared to make an improved bid for Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater.
Earlier this week suggested that the Foxes have already turned down a £15m offer from Chelsea.
The Blues could now plan to make a £40m bid for 27-year-old Englishman to seal the deal finally.
Drinkwater is currently out of action due to injury and hasn’t been involved in the season opener game against Arsenal.
The England international himself is believed to be keen on to make Stamford Bridge move to being reunited with his former teammate N’Golo Kante.
Former Juventus head-coach is desperate to strengthen the depth of his squad following their return to the Champions League football.
With Nemanja Matic’s departure to Manchester United and Bakayako’s injury could see Drinkwater to start for Chelsea will his close friend N’Golo Kante, according to the Daily Telegraph.
The 27-year-old has shown his quality during his time at King Power Stadium helping then to claim they’re first ever Premier League title in 2015/16 season.
Antonio Conte has again hit out at his club for failing to strengthen the squad for the 2017/18 season.
When pressed on why, he alluded to transfers again, saying: ‘Why? I have always answered this question, not only once but twice, three times.’
