Danny Drinkwater could be making the move back to Leicester after struggling to fit into the FA Cup winner’s side.
Chelsea are reportedly prepared to let the England international leave, but they could well be looking at a loss of up to £15m.
Drinkwater signed for the London club at the final hour last summer, but Chelsea have not got the best out of him due to a series of injuries.
According to Teamtalk, the Foxes are willing to stump up some cash to bring Drinkwater back to the King Power Stadium if he is not in Maurizio Sarri’s plans.
The new Chelsea boss has his work cut out holding onto a series of players.
But by bringing Jorginho on board there looks to be little need for the England international- especially with the influx of players returning to Stamford Bridge from loan spells.
Leicester are prepared to put an offer of £20m on the table for Drinkwater, which is £15m shy of the fee that Chelsea paid them last summer.
But the 28-year-old could well return to his former club on a loan deal.
Drinkwater has fallen further and further down the pecking order and any additional signings this summer would pretty much force him out.
But it is not all doom and gloom for the midfielder, as it’s not just Leicester who are interested in him, so too are Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Southampton.
