He had submitted a transfer request to the club for a move to Chelsea. Chelsea is seriously interested in signing him before the conclusion of transfer. Leicester City star Danny Drinkwater has handed in a transfer request to the club as he wants to force a move to champions Chelsea before the end of the transfer window. The Englishman has severely been connected with the Blues recently with Antonio Conte spotting him as a great player that will help him at Stamford Bridge. Since the departure of Nemanja Matic to Manchester United, Chelsea has been looking for a replacement, and Conte has been under severe pressure.
Drinkwater moving to Chelsea will be a big relieve for Antonio Conte after Arsenal star Alex Chamberlain turned down a significant move to Stamford Bridge.
But Chelsea will now have to meet up with Leicester City’s asking price of £40 million for the chance to sign Danny Drinkwater before September 1, 2017.
