West Ham could agree deal with Chelsea for £18m star

West Ham United are reportedly linked with Chelsea and England international star Danny Drinkwater, according to report from The Telegraph.

The Premier League giants, who play host to Stoke City at the London Stadium on Monday night, have been linked with a summer move for the Chelsea midfielder.

Drinkwater, who has three international appearances for the Three Lions, has netted one goal in 22 appearances across all competitions for the defending champions this season.

The midfielder joined Chelsea from Leicester City in September 2017 in a reported £35m deal, has grown frustrated at his lack of first-team playing opportunities under Blues manager Antonio Conte during his debut season, having played just five Premier League games.

The report claims the Hammers hold an interest in signing the central midfielder this summer, with the player due to weigh up his future with The Blues at the end of the season after failing to make much of an impact at the London outfit.

Chelsea would look to recoup most, if not all, of what they paid for Drinkwater last summer, having tied him down to a five-year contract, but he is valued at £18m by transfermarkt.
