The 'Take Care' star was pictured enjoying a curry with the Premier League footballer over the weekend.
Drake has been spotted dining out with Manchester City football star Mario Balotelli after the Premier League star's match with Sunderland on Saturday (31st March).
The 'Moment 4 Life' star posed for a picture with the star at a curry house in the city after he was invited by the Italian footballer to join him.
The Sun reports that the Canadian star paid tribute to the striker at his local gig and said: "No matter what team he's in, he's an amazing footballer."
The rapper has been performing in the UK on his European tour and told Capital backstage at the O2 Arena that he is hopeful his duet with Justin Bieber will make it onto the teen star's forthcoming album 'Believe'.
