Three reasons Chelsea should be targeting Renato Sanches over Danny Drinkwater

According to reports on Italian website Mediaset Premium, via Football Italia, Chelsea are ready to cool their interest in Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches and instead move for Leicester City’s Danny Drinkwater.

The report says that the Blues had been targeting a move for the 19-year-old, who looks set to leave the Bundesliga champions this summer following a difficult first season at the Allianz Arena, but now they have switched their attentions to Drinkwater.

The England international would once again link up with N’Golo Kante if he did complete a move to Stamford Bridge, with Mediaset Premium, via Football Italia, claiming that AC Milan have been left in pole position to sign the Portugal international on loan, although a permanent deal could still be possible.

While Antonio Conte is seemingly keen on Drinkwater, he certainly shouldn’t rule out a move for the Portuguese starlet, who could prove to be a better addition for the Premier League holders.
