Chelsea’s bid far from Leicester’s asking price for Drinkwater

by -

Chelsea are ready to place a second bid for Danny Drinkwater but the Blues are reluctant to offer more than £ 30m, as the Foxes are demanding.

The Stamford Bridge outfit made an offer believed to be in the region of £ 20m last week, but Leicester City rejected it.

According to Standard Sports, the English midfielder, who is close to full fitness after a minor thigh injury, is keen to make the move to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is really keen to sign Drinkwater to revamp his midfield, that lost Nemanja Matic in favour of Manchester United and Ruben Loftus Cheek on loan to Crystal Palace.
