Leicester have already begun to lose their key players and by the looks of things more stars could be on their way put of the team;
Wenger, as usual, couldn’t hit the target when he aimed at Vardy and is reportedly lurking around the corner to possibly acquire the services of Riyad Mahrez away before the summer transfer window draws to a close.
One player who much attention hasn’t been paid to by the club is England international midfielder, Danny Drinkwater, and he could be on his way out after it had emerged he wasn’t handed a renewed contract offer.
Tottenham is said to be monitoring the situation closely as Pochettino is an admirer of the 26-year-old. A passionate player and set-piece specialist, Drinkwater helped Leicester to a title win alongside Kante in the middle of the park.
Tottenham recently acquired Southampton’s Wanyama, another defensive midfielder who will link up with Eric Dier in that position.
But given Kante’s aggressive style of play which makes him susceptible to match bans, Tottenham might have identified Drinkwater as a better option.
Although he enjoyed much cover and protection from Kante’s tireless runs and tackles last term, the abilities of the former Manchester United trainee are of immense quality.
A good passer of the ball; Danny recorded a 77.6% pass success rate last season.
Replacing Kante is still a mission Ranieri is hoping to succeed at, and it’s quite obvious that they can’t afford more exits. Although he has two more years on his current contract, the chances are that he won’t hesitate to call time on his stay with the Blue Army.
1199 successful passes 80 tackles and 46 interceptions shouldn’t be let go. His latest comment concerning the whole issue says it all;
“I am not going chasing the club. It is up to them to approach me. I would love to commit, but I just want to play football. I still have two years left on my contract so it is not a be all and end all if I don’t sign a new one in the next few weeks. I’m still under contract so I can’t really say too much, but I’m a Leicester City player at the minute. It’s up to them how they handle it.”
