Although he’s not been lauded to the extent of his former colleague or Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy, Drinkwater has attracted attention in recent times, with Spurs thought to be watching his situation.

And reports claim the reigning English champions have accelerated negotiations with the 26-year-old, but that he’s turned down a staggering £80,000-per-week contract offer.

However, it’s understood that Leicester will return with a proposal worth in the region of £100,000-per-week, which will put him in the same bracket as Vardy in terms of pay.
