Chelsea could have opportunity to offload misfit as two Premier League clubs eye swoop

It’s fair to mention that Danny Drinkwater hasn’t had the most effective of spells at Chelsea, but he may be set for a temporary exit this season at least.

The 29-year-old joined the Blues in 2017 when establishing himself as a center lynchpin for Leicester city as they secured the Premier League title in 2016.

However, after making just twenty-two appearances in his 1st year with Chelsea, he featured in the Community Shield last season and wasn’t seen again as he did not break into the line-up under Maurizio Sarri.

With a change in management as Frank Lampard took over from Sarri, the England international would have been hoping for a fresh start, however, speculation continues to link him with a move away from Stamford Bridge.

According to The Sun, both Brighton and Norwich city have an interest in him, and while it’s noted that Chelsea would prefer to sell outright, they may have to accept a season-long loan deal.

Time will tell if they’ll reach an agreement with either club, but ultimately it might be a move that suits all parties as Lampard will be looking to offer his younger players opportunities to play while Drinkwater could have a more prominent role elsewhere while helping either Brighton or Norwich avoid the drop.

In turn, with just over forty-eight hours to go till the transfer deadline, they’ll need to move quickly to get a deal through in time but it may be the first step towards an exit for Drinkwater after a bitterly underwhelming stint in west London.
