Chelsea midfielder Bakayoko on Drinkwater talk: He doesn't scare me!

Leicester City are not interested in selling Chelsea target Danny Drinkwater unless they receive a huge bid with a day left in the transfer window.

Leicester expect to lose Drinkwater to Chelsea but reports this morning suggested that Chelsea's initial offer has not met Leicester's valuation of the midfielder, who has handed in a transfer request.

Chelsea have already landed holding midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco this summer but Blues boss Antonio Conte is said to be a big fan of Drinkwater and believes that the former Manchester United youngster offers something different to his side.

Leicester, though, are in a position where they do not have to sell and Drinkwater only put pen to paper in a new five-year deal just 12 months ago.

They were also found guilty of embezzlement as some funds that went to Choi's funds and daughter came from the corporate coffers. The five-year sentence is one of the longest prison terms given to a business leader in South Korean history.

Drinkwater is yet to feature for the 2015/16 English top flight champions as rumours continue to spread about an impending move to Stamford Bridge.

The Blues take on Leicester City in their next Premier League game at the King Power Stadium after the worldwide break.

It may not be the most glamorous signing of the summer transfer window but Drinkwater would provide Chelsea with added depth in midfield which would also allow Fabregas to roam free further up the pitch.

"Competition only makes you better. I am not scared of anyone", Bakayoko told French media SFR Sport. But I'm ready in every case to continue to work with the players we have'.
