Leicester's Craig Shakespeare fears Riyad Mahrez, Danny Drinkwater bids

Leicester City boss Craig Shakespeare says he remains worried the club will receive "acceptable" bids for Riyad Mahrez and Danny Drinkwater in the final days of the window.

Algeria winger Mahrez, 26, was a target for Roma earlier in the summer while Chelsea are widely reported to have targeted England midfielder Drinkwater, 27.

"I've read the speculation the same as you but until we get the bids accepted, there's no difference for me," Shakespeare told reporters. "We carry on with them. All the time we're talking about the speculation. We'll carry on as normal until I'm told otherwise.

"I've said that your worst fear is that an acceptable bid comes in but, if it does, we have to deal with it. Until it does, we have no decision to make."

Riyad Mahrez and Danny Drinkwater could yet leave Leicester this summer.

He added: "We have to be aware that the window goes to the end. We have to be aware of every scenario. It could work the other way, that we're in for a player and it isn't accepted until three, two, one day before.

"We always have conversations in the recruitment department. We're always aware of the what-ifs."

The Daily Mail reported on Monday that Chelsea recently held fresh talks with Leicester over Drinkwater, who is reported to be rated at £35 million.

Roma, though, appear to have abandoned their pursuit of Mahrez due to Leicester's reported £50m price tag, with sporting director Monchi saying earlier this month they would not make any further bids
