The Sun report that Leicester City could look to re-sign Danny Drinkwater from Chelsea.

Leicester only sold Drinkwater to Chelsea last summer in a big money move, but the English midfielder has failed to make much of an impression at Stamford Bridge.

 

With Maurizio Sarri now in charge, Drinkwater seems to have fallen even further down the pecking order.

And Leicester are touted as a potential destination for Drinkwater to come back to.

Drinkwater was one of Leicester’s heroes as they won the Premier League title, and his return to the King Power Stadium would likely be welcomed by both players and supporters.

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy, in particular, could be delighted with the reports that Drinkwater could come back, as the pair had a great understanding during their time playing together for the Foxes.
