REPORTS: Chelsea Making Move To Sign Another Winger Next Year

Chelsea football club was undeniably one of the busiest Premier League clubs during the recently concluded summer transfer window before being closed down last month. 

The West London club, which won the UEFA Champions League trophy last season, is looking to build on their success under manager Thomas Tuchel and has completed the signings of Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Bettinelli. 

So far, it has paid off handsomely, with the Blues currently sitting atop the Premier League table with 16 points from their first seven league games. 

Despite their recent success, the Blues are keen to improve their attacking options when the transfer window opens next year, and have been linked with a move to re-sign Real Madrid's Eden Hazard. 

The 30-year-old Belgian international, who left Chelsea in 2019 to join Real Madrid, has failed to live up to expectations at the club since his arrival. 

Despite an impressive 2020/2021 season in which he scored four goals and provided one assist in 48 appearances across all competitions, the experienced winger has been plagued by injuries at Real Madrid. 

Eden Hazard has had a strong start to the 2021/2022 season for Real Madrid, recording one assist in eight appearances across all competitions. 

The experienced winger is thought to be looking for a move away from the club, and according to Daily Mail reports, Chelsea is interested in bringing him back to Stamford Bridge. 

The Blues want to strengthen an area that already includes Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech, and Mason Mount, and they plan to sign Eden Hazard when the transfer window opens next year.
