However Leicester are in no pressure to deal with because the England global recently committed in a new four years contract.

Leicester are expected to put up a big fight to keep hold of Drinkwater but Chelsea are exploring their options.

The Blues are also being linked with Everton's Ross Barkley in that position, while Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Juventus' Alex Sandro remain priorities for the wing-back positions.

Drinkwater played a key role as Leicester surprisingly won the Premier League title in 2015-16, but struggled for form last season as he contributed just one goal and three assists in all competitions.
