West Ham United keen on signing Chelsea star
WEST HAM EYE DRINKWATER
West Ham United are keen on signing Danny Drinkwater according to ExWHUEmployee. The highly reliable ITK has claimed that the Chelsea star is in the Hammer’s plans for the transfer window.
The London side are keen on taking advantage of Drinkwater’s frustration at Chelsea. The former Leicester City star is said to be unhappy with the number of games he’s got at Stamford Bridge and is looking to leave in the summer.
Danny Drinkwater of Chelsea has emerged as a potential midfield target for us following his frustration at his lack of games and the signing could become even more realistic if Leicester’s Director of football Eduardo Macià is appointed (who actually sold him to Chelsea funnily)

ExWHUemployee also reports that West Ham are close to appointing Eduardo Macia, Leicester City’s Director of Football. The very same person who sold the Englishman to Chelsea last summer.
The £35 million signing has just over 500 minutes of football under his belt at Chelsea this season. The 28-year-old now seeks a move away and is set to be offered an escape route by West Ham.

Drinkwater’s World Cup dreams are all but over as he has failed to make any impact at Chelsea. The midfielder was not in Gareth Southgate’s squad even for the friendlies last month.
