  • Chelsea confident of agreeing deal for Antonio Conte's fifth summer signing

Radio Monte Carlo is reporting that Premier League champions Chelsea are wrapping up the deal for Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater.

Despite Bakayoko's arrival in a £40m deal from Monaco earlier this summer, Chelsea have been left light in central midfield with the departures of Nemanja Matic to Manchester United and Nathaniel Chalobah to Watford, as well as Ruben Loftus-Cheek's season-long loan move to Crystal Palace.

Antonio Conte has been vocal in his calls for fresh faces before the summer window closes, with Chelsea short on senior numbers. In addition to continuing their pursuit of Drinkwater, the club are also said to have agreed a fee of around £35m for wantaway Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and hope to sign Swansea City striker Fernando Llorente.

Leicester City will be keen to ensure that they find a player of sufficient quality to replace Drinkwater, and Krychowiak could be the flawless option.
