Chelsea’s reportedly sign this player for £37 million

Chelsea’s  reportedly sign this player for £37 million

Last summer the London club wanted to bring in both N’Golo Kante and Drinkwater but where unable to complete a move for the English international.

Leicester were unwilling to sanction the sale of both of their key midfielders to a Premier League rival.

Antonio Conte has been impressed by his work rate and passing ability and is now prepared to make a move.

Now, reports from Standard Sports (do keep a pinch of salt han) suggest that Leicester City have accepted Chelsea’s rather generous £37 million bid for the Manchester United academy graduate.

According to Standard Sports, the England midfielder, is expected to undergo medical with the Premier League champions on Monday.

Drinkwater is absent from Leicester’s squad to face Borussia Mönchengladbach this weekend, as he has traveled to London to finalize terms.

Blues boss Antonio Conte, sees the 27-year-old as a possible replacement for Nemanja Matic, who has joined Manchester United in a £40m deal.

Drinkwater was an integral part of the Leicester team, that won the title in 2015/2016 and his performances earned him a call-up to the England squad in March 2016.

Last summer, N’Golo Kante, who partnered Drinkwater in that title-winning Leicester midfield, joined Chelsea for £30m and has won the league title last season.
