Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater is unsure about his future after Chelsea failed to submit a second bid for the Englishman after their initial bid of £15m was rejected by the Premier League club, according to a report from the Telegraph.

The Englishman was a target for Chelsea boss Antonio Conte following the departure of Serbian midfielder Nemanja Matic to rivals Manchester United.

The Blues made an offer which was rejected but since then, the Premier League champions have not made contact with Drinkwater or Leicester about a potential deal.

The player himself is reportedly open to a move to Stamford Bridge and Leicester have value the 27-year-old at £30m.

Conte seemed to have Drinkwater high on his list of transfer targets this summer but the interest seems to have decreased as the Italian identifies other targets.

The Italian is aiming to bring in about four new faces before the transfer window slams shut and has not been pleased with the lack business that Chelsea have carried out so far this summer.

He feels that his squad is too thin to compete in all competitions and also let midfielder Lewis Baker leave to join Middlesbrough on loan which leaves him even thinner in midfield.

Drinkwater isn’t desperate for the move but if Chelsea come calling then it is an opportunity which he will not turn down.
