Chelsea to make an improved £25m bid

Share

While that valuation is apparently well above Chelsea's own valuation of a player who would at most fill in as a rotational player, given the current market conditions and Chelsea's need for reinforcements, now is not the time to penny-pinch.

The Blues have been reported to have a strong interest in the Leicester City midfielder, having already made an initial £15 million bid, which, as you'd expect, was rejected by the Foxes.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the west London side are ready to make another attempt to lure the 27-year-old midfielder to Stamford Bridge after failing with their first bid to sign the England global.

The report says Chelsea are set to return with a significantly larger bid in the region of £25m.

A new central midfielder to replace Nemanja Matic following his £40m move to Manchester United is a priority and Drinkwater has emerged as a prime target in recent weeks.

Drinkwater is said to be keen to move to the London club, despite not being guaranteed a place in the starting XI.

However, the England global is reportedly not concerned and is keen to test himself at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have spent almost £150million on signing Alvaro Morata, Antonio Rudiger and Bakayoko this summer but Conte is keen to add three of four new faces to his squad before the window closes.

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