And Conte is keen to secure England worldwide Drinkwater as soon as possible, with the Blues kicking off their title defence against Burnley on August 12.
He sees Drinkwater as a good fit to replace Nemanja Matic - who recently left to rivals Manchester United for £40m.
The loss of Matic and sale of Nathaniel Chalobah to Watford means that Conte has Cesc Fabregas, N'Golo Kante and new signing Tiemoue Bakayoko as options in the middle of the park.

Heck, AMD Windows drivers have really improved over the years too, making it a treat to upgrade when a new version is released . The new high-end range from AMD will start with the RX Vega56 graphics card and will retail for $399 according to the company.
The ex-Manchester United youth product had apparently been eager on joining Chelsea a year ago, but was convinced to remain in the Midlands for another season by then boss Claudio Ranieri. The reported price for the English midfielder is believed to be £40 million, however with so many years running in his contract, prising him away could be tough for the last season's Premier league champions.
That seems like a very reasonable fee in today's market for an England worldwide who still has three years left to run on his contract so I think it would be great business by Chelsea if they could get a deal agreed.
Drinkwater was a vital component to the King Power stadium-based side's unprecedented 2015/16 Premier League title triumph, and featured prominently for them last term too despite the poor defence of their league crown.
The Italian Manager has already asked Bayern Munich about the availability of Renato Sanches and Drinkwater is also on his list of targets.
