Chelsea are looking to secure the signature of Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater before they take on Tottenham at Wembley on Sunday, according to the Daily Star.
After Cesc Fabregas was sent off against Burnley in Chelsea’s 3-2 defeat, Antonio Conte has been left with just one fit central midfielder going into the game against Spurs on Sunday.

The Daily Star report that the Chelsea board are working hard to secure a move for the midfielder after Cesc Fabregas was sent off in the club’s season opener at Stamford Bridge last Sunday.
