West Ham keen on Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater

West Ham appear to have a genuine interest in signing Danny Drinkwater this summer.

The reports in England suggested that West Ham will look to sign Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater.

The England international joined Chelsea from Leicester City for a fee in the region of 37.9 million euros in August 2017. His contract expires in the summer of 2022.

Drinkwater has played 22 times for Chelsea since signing from Leicester City, scoring one goal.

The 28-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in England.

Danny Drinkwater has represented England at Under-18 and Under-19 level, winning 16 caps and scoring two goals, before making his senior international debut in March 2016. As a member of England national football team, Drinkwater won three caps.

Adding a midfielder remains West Ham’s priority this summer and David Moyes will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming weeks.

The report claims that West Ham manager has extensively scouted Danny Drinkwater and is considering a move for the midfielder.

David Moyes will reportedly be handed a huge transfer kitty this summer and the Chelsea midfielder is thought to be among the manager’s priorities.

Drinkwater has the talent to play many roles in midfield.

According to The Sun (via Telegraph Sport), “Telegraph Sport say the Hammers have been alerted to his frustration due to lack of game time, with Chelsea looking to reshape their squad in the summer. Drinkwater will not be short of offers if he decides to leave Stamford Bridge as David Moyes is keen on landing a top quality central midfield operator.”


Chelsea are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the midfielder, but offers in the region of 38 million euros may force the club to consider a deal.

A move away from Chelsea will not be only the best move for Drinkwater, but also for the club.

The 28-year-old is certainly a player that would strengthen the current West Ham squad and would be a good buy in the summer transfer window.
