Danny Drinwater could move to West Ham United to end his Chelsea FC nightmare at the end of the season, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mirror, as reported by talkSPORT, is claiming that the England international could be sold to their London rivals West Ham in the 2018 summer transfer.

The same article states that Drinkwater is frustrated at his disappointing first season at the west London club following a summer switch from Leicester City in 2017.

According to the same story, West Ham are hoping to appoint Leicester director of football Eduardo Macia ahead of the summer transfer window to fuel talk of a Hammers’ swoop for Drinkwater.

Chelsea FC signed the former Manchester United midfielder in a £35m deal from Leicester in the 2017 summer transfer window.

The Blues were presumably hoping that Drinkwater could rekindle his impressive partnership with N’Golo Kante at Stamford Bridge.

The pair helped Leicester to win an unprecedented Premier League title in 2015-16 under former Blues boss Claudio Ranieri.

Drinkwater’s season has been hampered by a string of injury problems to limit the versatile midfielder to limit the summer signing to one goal in 23 appearances in all competitions.

The former Leicester star has started five games and made seven appearances from the bench in the Premier League.
