Craig Shakespeare expects Danny Drinkwater to stay at Leicester this summer

Craig Shakespeare expects Danny Drinkwater to stay at Leicester this summer

However, The Telegraph claim the Stamford Bridge club have not given up on the 27-year-old and are preparing a second offer.

Law wrote Chelsea will make a second offer for Drinkwater as part of a plan to sign up to three players before this summer's transfer window closes on August 31.

There have been widespread reports in the British media in recent days suggesting that the Blues are keen on luring the England worldwide to Stamford Bridge following the sale of Nemanja Matic to Manchester United last week.

However, it would appear that Leicester City boss Shakespeare has no intention of letting one of his club's prized assets leave the King Power Stadium this summer.

Recruiting the former Manchester United starlet would also add to the club's share of "home-grown" players, which Conte is said to be keen on doing, but other than that the London Blues are best to focus on their other interests in proven players such as Oxlade-Chamberlain or Van Dijk. The speculation is always going to be out there at this time of year.

Thus, a move for Drinkwater can strengthen Chelsea's midfield further with the player forging a proven and strong partnership at the heart of midfield in the past.

A £15m bid was knocked back by Leicester, who are holding out for £30m, a number of weeks ago. "You have to deal with reality but also keep a calmness about you as well". However, Serie A rivals Inter Milan are understood to be unfazed from the price-tag and the club's director of football Walter Sabatini is believed to have made contact with Leicester over a move.

"He hasn't given me one problem where I've had to pull him to the side and say, 'Oi, pull your finger out.' Until we get a bid that is reasonable for Leicester, he will stay".
