According to reports from The Telegraph, Chelsea and Leicester City are continuing negotiations over the potential transfer of Danny Drinkwater, who is being eyed as a midfield reinforcement for the reigning champions.
The England international was a key part of the Foxes side that won the Premier League title in between the Blues’ last two crownings, playing alongside now-Chelsea star N’Golo Kante, and has proved himself to be a hardworking, reliable performer with a touch of quality.
However, the same publication also claim the Blues are interested in Everton’s Ross Barkley, a somewhat more exciting English midfielder technically who can offer more going forward, whether he’s deployed in the engine room or slightly further up the pitch.
It seems unlikely Chelsea will seal deals for both before the transfer window slams shut later this week. So, Blues fans, would you prefer your club to sign the sturdier, more defensive Leicester City ace, who Transfermarkt value at just £8.1million, or the creative Everton man?
