Chelsea eye potential Eden Hazard replacement

The Sun claim the Italy global wide man would be the ideal replacement for Eden Hazard if Real Madrid come in for the Belgian.

A rumor that we've completely ignored over the last few days had Chelsea linked with Napoli's adorable little magic-man, Lorenzo Insigne.

Lorenzo Insigne's agent has rubbished reports that the Napoli forward could be on his way to Premier League side Chelsea.

Insigne bagged 18 goals and nine assists for Napoli as they finished third in Serie A, just five points behind eventual winners Juventus.

Conte has reportedly already made contact with Insigne's camp, and personal terms with the 26-year-old are apparently already being negotiated.

It is believed that the 2016/17 Premier League champions have offered the Belgium global a new contract worth £300 000 (R4.8 million) a week, but the player is yet to sign the new deal. And for his replacement, the Chelsea boss has turned his attention towards Insigne, who he has previously managed when he was in charge of the Italy national team. Also, Insigne is reportedly available for a bid of £45 million and that sum should not prove to be a problem for the Premier League champions.

Well, while Real continue to sniff round Hazard the fact that he has a broken ankle, and will probably want at least another season at Chelsea to see if he can help them win the Champions League, should ensure that he stays at Stamford Bridge this summer.

Do you think Insigne would be a good replacement for Hazard?
