Leicester City should target this Manchester City midfielder if Danny Drinkwater departs

Leicester City supporters in the Transfer Tavern are alarmed at the potential departure of Danny Drinkwater to champions Chelsea.

According to the latest reports, Antonio Conte’s side is allegedly closing in on the permanent transfer of Danny Drinkwater from Leicester City. The Englishman ascertained his status as an indispensable member of the Foxes during their indelible title success of 2015/16. The 28-year-old is lauded for his composure and terrific passing ability, and it seems that his talent has attracted the interest of Antonio Conte.

If Drinkwater’s alleged transfer to the Blues materialises, then the Foxes must be prepared to identify and obtain a replacement. Our landlord believes that he’s found the perfect fit. Manchester City’s Fabian Delph is seemingly surplus to requirements at City, and our landlord thinks he would be the perfect replacement for Danny Drinkwater.

The Englishman is a proven Premier League talent who has amassed crucial experience with the likes of Aston Villa and Manchester City. He’s also endowed with great maturity and football intelligence; he formerly captained the Villans.

In a similar manner to Drinkwater, Delph is lauded for his ability to control proceedings at the heart of midfield. He oozes composure when in possession, and he’s highly regarded for his dribbling skills and ability to play long-balls.

In a transfer window in which clubs are paying astronomical fees to secure their targets, a deal for Delph could be one of the most affordable transfers of the window.
