Norwich City, Brighton & Hove Albion to battle it out for Danny Drinkwater

Norwich City and Brighton & Hove Albion have emerged as the two clubs interested in signing Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater according to The Sun reports. 

The Canaries who were promoted to the Premier League at the end of the 2018/19 Championship season are in the process of strengthening their squad as they look to dominate in their long return to topflight.

Norwich City manager Daniel Farke has bought in some new players to the side including Sam Byram, Josip Drmic and Patrick Roberts but will be looking to add more before the summer transfer window deadline on Thursday, August 8.

The Sun exclaims that Norwich are targeting Danny Drinkwater as their priority signing but they will also be battling with Brighton for the midfielder's services. 

Drinkwater may find this as the ideal move despite Norwich offering a season-long deal with the former making a mere 23 appearances for Chelsea.

Despite his known struggles at Stamford Bridge, the 29-year-old has been tipped as the man to bring depth to Norwich's midfield - in hope that it proves fruitful with his hard work and dedication.
