Hammers eye Chelsea man

West Ham are reported as holding an interest in Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater.

The story appears in The Sun this morning having been first reported by  Hammers ITK ExWHUemployee on Twitter.

It claims that Drinkwater – formerly at Leicester City is frustrated at his lack of game time following his £35 million move from the Foxes last season.

Whether the Irons board would cough up that sort of dough for the midfielder is another question given that the Blues are likely to want the cash they spent on signing him from City..

However, with a new manager likely to be arriving at the Bridge this summer it’s a fair shout with a 50/50 chance of perhaps becoming reality given David Moyes hunt for a top quality operator in the middle of the park.

Drinkwater – weaned at Manchester United – was put out on loan four times before moving to Leicester and on to Chelsea and has been capped on three occasions by England.

  1. 35mill your having a bubble. For drinkwater don’t make story’s in press seem like this board would pay anywhere near that figure for an average decent player like drinkwater. Now if it’s kante that’s the type we need in midfield just watching his work rate makes you feel out of breath and his contribution to any top side is enormous.
