Why Norwich should beat Brighton for Danny Drinkwater
According to a report in Sun, Premier League’s newcomers Norwich City have joined fellow club Brighton in the race to sign Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater before the transfer deadline.
The 29-year-old, who clearly is out of the plans at Stamford Bridge under Frank Lampard, is almost certain to leave the club. Brighton want him on a season-long loan but Norwich have joined the race. (h/t Sun)
The Canaries have made some good business in this transfer window but they could do with more experience and talent in the midfield, especially for competing in a league like the Premier League.
They have added Daniel Adshead to their midfield this summer but it doesn’t really improve the quality of the options they already have in that department.
Here’s how signing Drinkwater would be really beneficial for Daniel Farke’s men before the deadline:
Drinkwater has the experience and quality
Danny Drinkwater is an experienced and a high-quality midfield player, who has already won a Premier League title with Leicester back in 2016.
He is a versatile player in the midfield. Drinkwater can play a deeper role but is also capable of operating as a box-to-box midfielder or in a pivot midfield if required.
In terms of his attributes, Drinkwater is a decent passer of the ball and can cover the ground well to impact the game in the midfield. He reads the game well off the ball and is capable of making late runs into the box if playing the advanced midfield role.
If Norwich City are looking to add more experience/quality to their midfield, signing the Chelsea man is an adequate solution.
