£35m Chelsea Flop Lined Up For West Ham Loan



Danny Drinkwater

East London club West Ham United are eyeing a loan deal for Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater.

The 28-year-old has endured a frustrating Blues career since he joined the club from Leicester City at the start of last season.

Chelsea paid £35m to secure his transfer from the Foxes on the summer deadline day of the last campaign.

According to popular media outlet talksport, West Ham United have made Danny Drinkwater their top transfer target before the end of this winter transfer window.

The Hammers have battled with several injury problems in midfield and a transfer for Drinkwater will boost the options at the disposal of club manager Manuel Pellegrini.

West Ham midfielders Jack Wilshere and Carlos Sanchez have missed the majority of the season with respective injuries.

Danny Drinkwater has struggled for game time since his move to Chelsea last season and this is in stark contrast to his time at Leicester City.

The one-cap England international was part of the Leicester City team that won the 2015/16 Premier League title in surprising fashion.

West Ham United have doubts over a permanent transfer for Danny Drinkwater at the moment and would prefer to loan him for the rest of the season with the possibility of signing him for the long haul.
