Chelsea outcast Danny Drinkwater could be heading to Vitality stadium for the rest of this campaign as Eddie Howe shows interest in his signature.
According to Daily Mail, the Bournemouth manager is convinced the England international will help bolster his midfield which has been far from convincing throughout so far this season.
£13.5m-rated Drinkwater joined the Blues from Leicester City 18 months ago but he has seen his career went down the due to lack of games.
At some point, the England international was forced to play with the youth team so as to maintain a topnotch fitness level.
As his chances of playing regularly for the Blues become more slimmer as the day goes by, Drinkwater has made up his mind to move elsewhere so in order return back to reckoning.
The media outlet further claimed that Chelsea are equally ready to let go of the midfielder on a six-month deal with a clause of £20m fee, should the Cherries desire to sign him permanently.
Drinkwater played massive roles in Leicester City’s unexpected run to their record-breaking Premier League title in 2015-16.
He formed a formidable partnership with N’Golo Kante at the middle of the pitch throughout the 2015-16 campaign and both players — who are under contract with Chelsea — provided strong cover for the back four.
Turkish side Fenerbahce are also linked with the player’s signature but it is unclear whether Abramovich will want to sanction his move to the relegation threatened side.
