Drinkwater being told he has no Chelsea future may encourage West Ham to swoop

Danny Drinkwater has been told again by Maurizio Sarri that he has no future at Chelsea, which may inspire West Ham to rekindle their January interest.

Danny Drinkwater has been told by Maurizio Sarri that he has no future at Chelsea and is free to leave the club this summer, according to the Guardian.

Drinkwater has not played a game for the Blues all season and Sarri has reiterated his desire to move the Englishman on.

Sarri said: “He has never played because he is not suitable to my system. I spoke with him in August, and said he should look for something different because he wouldn’t play.

 

“A player usually wants only to play, so I cannot do anything. I don’t know [why he decided to stay]. Probably he hoped we could change the system.”

And the report says West Ham were interested in Drinkwater during the January window, something which was also reported by TalkSport at the time.

Given the player who the BBC report cost Chelsea £35m when he joined from Leicester has been told once more that there’s no point him staying around, Manuel Pellegrini should be on red alert.

With the likes of Jack Wilshere and Carlos Sanchez suffering injury problems and the other midfielders who aren’t called Declan Rice struggling for consistency, a proven Premier League player with determined to make up for lost time such as Drinkwater could be a very shrewd addition if the price is right.
