Reports broke out last night from the Daily Mail that Brighton could be possibly interested in taking the outcast that is Danny Drinkwater away from Chelsea on a loan.

The midfielder has been left out of the squad for the last two pre-season games, after Lampard looks to send him away as well as Bakayoko.

Drinkwater still has three years left on his contract, but he only managed one appearance last year in the Community Shield and has really gone out of favour.

Brighton are looking for a midfielder who could sit back and control the play, and Drinkwater could be that player.

We suspect that Drinkwater would much rather go on loan himself as he gets to keep these high wages at Chelsea, while still playing football at a high level.

Also, Chelsea probably wouldn’t get anywhere near the £30 million fee if they were to sell him, making a huge loss.
