According to ExWHUemployee, West Ham are interested in signing Chelsea flop Danny Drinkwater, but the Premier League winner arriving at the London Stadium before this evening’s deadline is highly unlikely.

The 29-year-old joined the Blues from Leicester City for £35 million in the summer of 2017, according to BBC Sport, but he has failed to make any kind of impact at Stamford Bridge.

In fact, he has made just 23 appearances for the Blues. That doesn’t mean that he wouldn’t be a good addition for the Hammers, however.

The Premier League champion is a solid, hard-working midfielder, with an impressive range of passing.

The three-capped England international still has plenty left to offer, and he seems to possess all of the attributes needed to be a hit at the London Stadium.

In fact, he would surely rediscover the form he displayed during his time at Leicester, if he was just given the opportunity to play regularly.

It seems that West ham have shown interest in bringing Drinkwater to the London Stadium. ExWHUemployee claimed that a move to sign the Chelsea man is highly unlikely at this late stage, however:
