Statistics

While Drinkwater has shown that he is a decent – but not brilliant – passer of the ball, and can take players on when required, Sanches showed exactly what he is capable of for Bayern last season despite only spending a limited time on the pitch.

In 17 Bundesliga appearances the 19-year-old had an average passing accuracy of 88% – showing how comfortable he is in possession – while he proved his ability to get the ball and drive forward from the middle of the park by successfully completing 18 of the 26 take-ons he attempted.

That desire to attack could be a useful tool for Chelsea next season with the likes of N’Golo Kante and Tiemoue Bakayoko more likely to get the ball and distribute it rather than running themselves.
