Drinkwater to West Ham? January transfer for unwanted Chelsea star?

According to reports, Danny Drinkwater could be set for an exit from Stamford Bridge, with West Ham United set to be interested in the star's services.

Drinkwater has fallen out of favour with new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri and has made only one appearance this season- in the Community Shield against Man City. He hasn't made a single appearance in the Premier League, Carabao Cup or the Europa League and has not even managed to make the bench.

With Drinkwater earning 100,000 a week, Chelsea not only need to find some one quick, but also need that club to be able to match his wages.

The midfielder's ex club Leicester City are said to be one, but West Ham also look likely candidates. The Hammers were very strongly linked with Drinkwater in the recently concluded summer window, but that move didn't materialise. They currently seem to play 3 in midfield, with Declan Rice behind Obiang and Noble. With Jack Wilshere injured, Drinkwater may be a good signing to aid the Hammers' depth in the centre of the park.
