Chelsea closing in on Leicester City's Danny Drinkwater, plan shock move for Jamie Vardy Drinkwater and Vardy are transfer targets for Chelsea manager Antonio Conte.

Chelsea are considering a double move in signing Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater and striker Jamie Vardy to bolster the squad.

Antonio Conte has already informed Diego Costa that he has no future at Stamford Bridge. The Blues have signed Spain international Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid earlier in the summer transfer window. This leaves the former Juventus manager with Morata and Michy Batshuayi as the two recognised players in the squad to lead his With Costa in exile and the Belgium international's future uncertain at the west London club, the Mirror claims that Chelsea are planning a shock move for Vardy. Batshuayi has been linked with a move to Lille as the Ligue 1 outfit are preparing a £36m ($46.2m) for the attacker. Conte has held talks with club director Marina Granovskaia, who is Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich's trusted aide over summer transfers. The report claims the latter believes that there is a greater value in signing younger players or older players instead of signing the players who are in their prime.

Vardy, 30, fits the profile of players that Granovskaia is targeting this summer. The England international striker was linked with a move to Arsenal last summer. However, he rejected advances from the Gunners and committed his future by signing a new deal, which saw him earn £100,000-a-week ($128,250 per week) at the King Power Stadium.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are also interested in signing Vardy's club and national teammate Drinkwater. The midfielder played a key role alongside N'Golo Kante in helping Leicester win the title in the 2015/16 season.
