Danny Drinkwater Set For A Shock Reunion With Claudio Ranieri At Roma

Danny Drinkwater could reportedly be set for a reunion with Claudio Ranieri at Roma.

The midfielder played under the Italian at Leicester and was a key part of the side that won the 2016 Premier League title.

That fairytale success has failed to continue for Drinkwater, 29, since then following his move to Chelsea in September 2017.

The former Manchester United trainee has not played a minute of action for the Blues since the arrival of Maurizio Sarri last summer, except for in August’s Community Shield.

But his career may be set for an unexpected twist with a move to Serie A.

CalcioMercato claim Ranieri, who returned to Roma as boss a week ago following last month’s sacking by Fulham, has recommended his old Leicester charge as the ideal man to fill the void of Daniele De Rossi.

The Roma legend, 36, is out of contract in June and doubts remain over his future in the Italian capital.

Drinkwater, who is also wanted on-loan by West Ham,currently pockets £100k-a-week at Stamford Bridge.

Sarri has admitted he has no plans to use the England international in his 4-3-3 formation, saying: “I think he is more suitable for playing with two midfielders.

“He is not a central midfielder, he is not a centre-right in the midfielder with three players. But he’s a very good player in a 4-4-2.”
