Chelsea signed Tiemoue Bakayako from Monaco this summer transfer window, and the Blues are still in need of another central midfielder, with Chelsea holding out for Danny Drinkwater of Leicester City.
Drinkwater has handed in a transfer request at Leicester in order to force through a move to Chelsea, with Chelsea keen on signing him.
The Blues have had an initial bid of £23million rejected for the England international, with the Foxes holding out for upwards of £30million.
Former West Ham defender Tony Gale has revealed that Drinkwater has the Premier League advantage and would be a good signing for Chelsea.
“He (Bakayoko) hasn’t got the Premier League experience that Danny Drinkwater has got,” Gale said on Sky Sports.
“Danny Drinkwater will go in there seamlessly for me. He knows (N’Golo) Kante’s game inside out, he knows the Premier League inside out.”
Gale also revealed his shock that Chelsea sold Nathaniel Chalobah to Watford.
“It was strange, Chalobah for me would have been perfect,” Gale added.
“He’s gone to Watford, Watford have nicked him.
“I saw him play at the weekend, Watford Brighton, that kid is going to be excellent.
“I think Chelsea have made a mistake by selling him.”
