Chelsea face the reality of losing star player Eden Hazard this summer. The Belgian has yet to make his mind up about his future, and is still yet to sign a new contract with Chelsea.

Although nothing is confirmed, Hazard has a close eye on Real Madrid. Should the Spaniards come knocking in the summer, Chelsea are likely to sell whilst they can still demand a decent fee.

So the talk is surrounding what would happen if Hazard left? Who would come in? One player mentioned a lot, and is also targeted by Liverpool, is Nabil Fekir.

The Lyon play maker’s future is up in the air, and Chelsea hold a strong interest in signing the 25-year old France international.

His newly employed agent Pini Zahavi has reportedly hinted at a move to Chelsea happening in the next few months.

Reported by L’Equipe, Zahavi attempts to find a solution to his clients future, with a transfer ‘perhaps to Chelsea’ happening in a few months, suggesting at a summertime move for Fekir.

This of course, could be agent talk in order to drum up interest, or negotiate a new deal for his client. But it’s is widely reported that Fekir wants to go the Premier League, and was close to joining Liverpool previously.
