Kaveh Solhekol, a Sky Sports journalist, has tonight stated that Antonio Conte will target Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater following the departure of Nemanja Matić to Machester United.

Although the 27-year-old didn’t have the best of seasons last year, only scoring once and assisting once in the Premier League, Drinkwater’s phenomenal performances two years ago alongside current Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kanté might interest the current Premier League champions. However, fans are not too pleased.

Chelsea are now down to only three central midfielders; N’Golo Kanté, Tiemoué Bakayoko and Cesc Fàbregas. Therefore Conte is now on the lookout for a fourth central midfielder in order to bolster his squad for the upcoming season. With the Champions League an added competition for the London club, Conte will need to rotate his squad more often and so more strength in depth is needed which has already made the Blues be linked with Bayern Munich’s Renato Sanches.
