Chelsea identify Everton enforcer as alternative to £40M-rated Leicester City midfielder

Chelsea identify Everton enforcer as alternative to £40M-rated Leicester City midfielder”

Chelsea are actively seeking recruitment in central midfield but have seen a potential deal for Leicester City's Danny Drinkwater stall over the fee, according to the Sun.

Drinkwater has emerged as a key target for Antonio Conte as he seeks to bolster his midfield options and reunite the England worldwide with former Foxes accomplice N'Golo Kante.

Antonio Conte has already informed Diego Costa that he has no future at Stamford Bridge.

Conte has held talks with club director Marina Granovskaia, who is Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich's trusted aide over summer transfers.

However, after a boring 2016-17 campaign, the player could be set to move away the King Power Stadium.

Chelsea are looking at Everton's Idrissa Gueye as an alternative to Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater. The midfielder played a key role alongside N'Golo Kante in helping Leicester win the title in the 2015/16 season.

Speaking about speculation over a number of his players, with Riyad Mahrez also tipped to leave, Craig Shakespeare said: 'I've read the speculation the same as you but until we get the bids accepted, there's no difference for me.

The Blues have already had a bid of just under £20m for Drinkwater rejected by the Foxes, who are looking for more than double that as they seek £40m for the 27-year-old.

Leicester have made four additions so far this summer, with Iheanacho and Iborra joined in the East Midlands by former Hull City duo Harry Maguire and Eldin Jakupovic.

In the midst of a lopsided transfer market where a £70 million striker is heralded as a "bargain", Chelsea are still trying to haggle over a couple deals as we look to reinforce the squad before the summer transfer window closes.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Ross Barkley are also being linked with the Blues but Drinkwater is said to be keen on a move to west London to link up with the champions.
