Out-of-favour Chelsea star Danny Drinkwater is set to link up with former Blues boss Claudio Ranieri who is the new manager of Fulham in the winter transfer window which reopens in coming weeks.

It has been a different story for Danny Drinkwater since the coming of manager Maurizio Sarri from Italian side Napoli has he has only had few games under his belt this season.

It was easier for Danny Drinkwater when he first joined the Stamford Bridge in 2017 from Leicester City after playing a major role to help the Foxes win the Premier League.

However, a move away from the West London is already on the table having expressed his frustration of sitting on the bench without seeing games this season.

With Danny Drinkwater working with manager Claudio Ranieri at Leicester City, there is a possibility that a reunion will be happening in January when the transfer window reopens again.

The fact that Claudio Ranieri has a relationship with the Stamford Bridge side and also his past relationship with the embattled player makes the deal easy to strike once an understanding is reached between both clubs.

Meanwhile, emerging reports reveal that Fulham will take only Danny Drinkwater on loan and will permanent the deal on the condition that they remain in the Premier League.
