The Blues have been reported to have a strong interest in the Leicester City midfielder, having already made an initial £15 million bid, which, as you'd expect, was rejected by the Foxes.
Chelsea are in desperate need of reinforcements and have just 14 experienced players in their squad for the start of the Premier League season.
However, the Blues boss knows he needs to further strengthen if Chelsea are going to compete on all fronts this season and the Evening Standard claims director Marina Granovskaia has stepped-up the clubs pursuit of new players with Conte wanting up to four more new arrivals before the end of the month. Drinkwater has been left in the dark over his future, but Chelsea are preparing a second offer that is likely to be worth over £25m for the 27-year-old. Such a strong interest in Danny Drinkwater comes as a result of Nemanja Matic's sale to Manchester United.
However, the same report says that Chelsea are yet to return with a second bid after failing with an opening offer of just £15m for the England global.

Aguayo sat alone for a few minutes after dressing at his locker following Friday's game. "Honestly, the extra point felt good". FSU coach Jimbo Fisher suggested previous year changes to Aguayo's kicking routine may have contributed to his inconsistency.
