Leicester's Danny Drinkwater submits transfer request to join Chelsea

Transfer news Danny Drinkerwater hands in Leicester transfer request to try and seal Chelsea switch

Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater has handed in a transfer request in a bid to force a move to Chelsea. But since Chelsea might be at losing end of a £40 million transfer battle with Liverpool for Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, they can very well use this amount to finally meet Leicester's valuation and put a definitive end to this saga.

The England worldwide also seems keen to play at Stamford Bridge and sample more Champions League football, but unless Chelsea make an improved bid and give Foxes boss Craig Shakespeare enough time to find a replacement, the player will have to stay put in the East Midlands. The Englishman is among a host summer targets shortlisted by the Blues with Antonio Conte who is pushing for the Premier League champions to complete some more new signings before the summer transfer window shuts.

The 27-year-old midfielder was a key part of the Leicester's Premier League-winning side in 2015-16, alongside N'Golo Kante, who has been a big hit since arriving at Chelsea.

However, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte wants a replacement for Nemanja Matic.
