And according to Twitter user @ExWHUemployee, David Moyes’ side are interested in luring the former Foxes ace over to the London Stadium.

They report that Drinkwater could be a realistic signing should West Ham nab Leicester’s head of recruitment Eduardo Macia.

The Hammers are understood to be keen on making Macia their director of football as they plan a major overhaul of the club.

The ex-Watford ace has been limited to just five starts in the top-flight this campaign under Conte, where he has netted on just the one occasion.

Chelsea are already eyeing up his replacement, with Nice central midfielder Jean Michael Seri a potential recruit.
