SkySports in UK believes that Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has set sights on Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater as he’s looking for a replacement following Nemanja Matic‘s departure to Old Trafford.
Anyway, Leicester are reportedly reluctant to sell the England international, who recently signed a new four-year deal with the Foxes. With Mahrez as a possible signing for AS Roma, Drinkwater could ask to leave the club in order to join the Premier League champions this summer.
As confirmed by SkySports reporter Kaveh Solhekol, “Chelsea are interested in signing the Leicester City midfielder” despite admitting that “Drinkwater is not for sale”.
