Leicester City are still facing the after-effects of winning the Premier League last season. The Foxes’ remarkable achievement last season has attracted a number of suitors for their stars.
The transfer window started with Arsenal’s interest in striker Jamie Vardy, but the champions managed to convince the England international to stay at the club. However, they were not so lucky in the case of N’Golo Kante, who joined Chelsea after spending just one season with the club.
The Foxes pulled the biggest coup of the window when Player of the Year Riyad Mahrez signed a new deal with the club. But it appears that the celebrations won’t last for long for the champions. The Sun claims that midfielder Danny Drinkwater has turned down a new £80,000-a-week contract from the Foxes amid interest from Tottenham.
The England international was a key player for Ranieri’s side last season and is currently on £30,000-a-week wages. The report claims that the new contract offer was turned down by Drinkwater’s representatives last week.
The Foxes are contemplating offering a package closer to £100,000 to the midfielder in order to convince him to stay at the club. Drinkwater reportedly has two years left on his current deal with the Foxes.
