Polish scout: Chelsea should've chosen Krychowiak over Drinkwater

Polish scout Michael Zachodny is surprised Chelsea ignored signing West Brom midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak.

Chelsea chose Danny Drinkwater from Leicester City ahead of the Pole, who is on-loan at Albion from PSG.

Zachodny told Sky Sports: "I was quite surprised that Chelsea, for example chose to sign Danny Drinkwater instead. Krychowiak is a much better player, it's as simple as that.

"We saw how important he can be, how much energy he has, how good a tackler he is both for Poland at Euro 2016 and for Sevilla. Last season might have put people off, but they should remember how good he was."

He added: "He is not the creative mind of a team, but he is a great destroyer whose energy can transmit to other players. He has always been a top pro and a leader for the national team. I'm sure it will be the same for West Brom."
