Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard wants to have a clear idea of what’s on the horizon before committing his long-term future to the club. According to recent reports, the Blues forward has revealed that his future at the West London club could hinge on the players coming in during this upcoming transfer window. It is understood that Chelsea are trying their best to convince Hazard to commit his future at Stamford Bridge by putting pen to paper on a new contract worth in the region of £300,000 ($405,000) per week.
However, the Belgian winger has still not signed a new deal which has prompted speculation linking him with a switch away from West London. Hazard has been in fine form for Chelsea and has been responsible for a number of match-winning performances during the course of this campaign. The 27-year-old has featured in 51 matches for the Blues this season, scoring 16 goals while creating 13 assists across all competitions.
With his future at Chelsea on the line, let’s take a look at three players the club should look to sign in this summer transfer window.
The Leicester City playmaker might be the most realistic option for the Blues right now and his record this season has been magnificent, to say the least. The Algerian international has scored 13 goals and made 13 assists in 41 appearances for the Foxes this term. He will definitely be an ideal fit to play with Hazard if Chelsea opts for his services this summer.
They will be getting a proven player who knows what it takes to win major honours as evidenced by his unbelievable title-winning campaign at the King Power Stadium, a few years ago.
The Bayer 04 Leverkusen winger has been in fine form for his club during the course of this season and has lit up the Bundesliga with some majestic performances so far. The 20-year-old Jamaican starlet has registered 12 goals while creating 6 assists in 34 games for the German outfit this term across all competitions. Bailey has all the makings of becoming a future star and Chelsea can look to capitalise on his potential by sealing a move for him in the summer transfer window.
The Atletico Madrid midfielder has enjoyed another strong campaign in Spain and has put in some sensational performances for the La Liga outfit over the last few years. The 23-year-old midfield enforcer has played in 54 matches for the Madrid-based team and has found the back of the net 6 times while creating 5 assists across all competitions. At 23, the Elche-born player still has his peak years ahead of him which the West Londoners could look to make use of in the years to come.
