As per the Telegraph, Chelsea have already seen a £15M bid turned down for the England worldwide, but are expected to raise their offer to £25M in hope of securing a deal. But Leicester could put up a fight for Drinkwater and demand the £40m Chelsea received from Manchester United for Nemanja Matic.

It remains to be seen whether Chelsea will be prepared to pay that kind of money but Drinkwater would provide solid competition for the likes of Bakayoko, N'Golo Kante and Cesc Fabregas if he were to move to Stamford Bridge and he'd also boost the clubs homegrown quota.

However, it would appear that Leicester City boss Shakespeare has no intention of letting one of his club's prized assets leave the King Power Stadium this summer.

"We don't want to sell our best players".

It's somewhat surprising Drinkwater would want to go from an established starter with the Foxes to perhaps spending most of his time on the bench at Chelsea.

'You know when you have good players there might be an interest in them.

According to the French website, Atalanta also made a loan offer with a view to buy, but met the same resistance from Leicester the Ligue 1 sides have had to deal with all summer. It is not a secret that Antonio Conte wants his club to sign a few more players before the end of the transfer window as Chelsea have so far signed Caballero, Rudiger, Bakayoko and Morata.

The departure of Matic has left Conte short of options in the middle of the park as he plots how to combine Chelsea's Premier League title defence with a return to the Champions League.

The Blues were beaten on penalties by Arsenal in the Community Shield at Wembley last weekend as they missed the chance to win their first trophy of the season.
