Chelsea are thriving under Maurizio Sarri and are unbeaten in all competitions this season. The Blues are currently third on the Premier League table, just four points behind the leaders, Manchester City.

Ross Barkley, Alvaro Morato, and David Luiz have resurrected their careers at Stamford Bridge under the Italian manager.

But there are a number of players whose careers regressed at Chelsea since his arrival and are currently surplus to the requirements at the club.

Right on this note, here is the list of four Chelsea players whose time at the club maybe coming to an end.


#1 Danny Drinkwater

Danny Drinkwater has been linked with a move back to Leicester City.

Manchester United academy graduate, Danny Drinkwater failed to make the grade at the Old Trafford and the Red Devils sold him to Leicester City in 2012 after loaning him out to four different clubs.

He quickly established himself as a first team regular for the Foxes and played a vital role in Leicester City's promotion to the Premier League from the Championship during the 2013-2014 season. He won the Leicester City Player of the Season 2013-2014 accolade and was also included in the Championship Team of the Season 2013-14.

Danny Drinkwater was one of the driving forces behind Leicester City's 2015-2016 Premier League glory and he contributed three goals and eight assists to the team's success.

His performances at the King's Power stadium derived interest from a number of big European clubs and he eventually joined Chelsea for £35 million in the summer transfer window of 2017.

However, he failed to replicate his Leicester form at Stamford Bridge and has been warming the bench at the club. He played just 12 Premier League games for the Blues during the 2017-2018 season, out of which seven were as a substitute.

The 28-year-old is yet to feature in a Premier League game for the London-based club this season and is currently surplus to the requirements at the club.

He was linked with a move back to his former club, Leicester City during the summer and could finally end his torrid spell with the Blues in January.
