Chelsea have made a new bid for Feyenoord wing-back Royston Drenthe.

The Guardian says after making a bid of £4.7m for the Dutch Under-21 international, Chelsea have now upped their offer to £7 million.

Chelsea are proposing that Drenthe be loaned back to Feyenoord for next season before arriving at Stamford Bridge next summer.

Real Madrid are also battling for Drenthe.
