Chelsea: Midfielder tops January shopping list; mega offer for Terry; Fabregas open to move
Eden Hazard could soon see his brother join him for the second time at Stamford Bridge as Antonio Conte has made Thorgan Hazard, currently at Borussia Monchengladbach as the club look to exercise a reported buyback clause worth somewhere between £16 million and £18 million. However, the Belgian is not keen on the move and will take some convincing according to the Express.
The 23-year-old has scored seven times in 12 games this season and has become a key player for his side playing as a central striker and in the hole behind a main striker, so it may well be worth the effort for Conte to do his best to persuade him to return to London as he looks to add goals to his team.
He could also be used as a replacement for Cesc Fabregas in midfield, with the Spaniard reportedly open to offers as he seeks to avoid seeing his career stagnate on the Stamford Bridge bench. However, sources close to the player believe that he will only leave if he can join a so-called ‘prestigious’ club with a January loan move likely, according to the Independent.
The former Arsenal man is believed to have turned down a move to AC Milan on deadline day as he wanted to fight for his place but may now consider his options as it seems that his preferred destination, Real Madrid, is no longer a possibility after the club were given a transfer ban.
Another experienced pro, and in his case a Chelsea stalwart, could have his days at the club numbered as the Daily Mail report that Guangzhou Evergrande have offered him a remarkable £8 million per season, effectively over £150,000 per week, to join them in the Chinese Super League.
Terry, now 35-years-old, is on a rolling one year contract at Stamford Bridge and his days may be numbered as he struggles to return to the starting line-up as Antonio Conte builds up his own new look defence with a number of young stars linked with the Blues in recent weeks.
