Chelsea and Liverpool weighing up surprise deal for triumphant England international

Indicative of just how ruthless modern day football is, Leicester City have seen their best players continue to be linked with moves away despite WINNING THE PREMIER LEAGUE.

What more can the Foxes possibly do?!

While the likes of Riyad Mahrez and N’Golo Kante grab the headlines in terms of potential departures, the most likely unlikely usurping all time was built off far more than the Herculean exploits of those two in particular.

To that end, fellow masterful midfielder Danny Drinkwater is now being touted as a potential target for top clubs in the shape of Chelsea and Liverpool, according to Gazzetta dello Sport

The recently capped England international has excelled as a deep-lying playmaker in the East Midlands this season, breaking his way into Three Lions contention ahead of Euro 2016.

It is a role that has been hard to fill for the Reds particularly, following the departure of the iconic Steven Gerrard.

Since being released by Manchester United, the 25-year old has worked his way back up into top level football and has been a major part of the Foxes’ title win this season.

Though Chelsea boast Cesc Fabregas in that role, the arrival of a relatively young and talented English pass master could prove an attractive option in Antonio Conte’s likely overhaul.

How good is Drinkwater? Should he be starting for England at the Euros, next to Eric Dier?
