Transfer rater: Chelsea could get rid of Danny Drinkwater
• The England international has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge
• The 28-year-old only joined Chelsea last summer
Graham Ruthven of Football Whispers rates Drinkwater's chances of joining Premier League side Southampton: "Drinkwater has struggled to make an impression at Chelsea since joining the Blues last year and now it seems that Southampton are ready to give the midfielder an escape route, reports The Sun.
"The Saints will make a loan offer to Chelsea, with Crystal Palace also interested in Drinkwater, who is not part of Maurizio Sarri's plans for the coming season at Stamford Bridge."
ESPN FC's rating: 2.1 (1.0 - unlikely, 3.0 - good chance, 5.0 - done deal).
