Hazard to become EPL’s highest paid player

Eden Hazard

Emerging reports hint that Belgium star Eden Hazard will be handed a new deal at Chelsea that will make him the highest paid player in the English Premier League.

The Stamford Bridge side are making efforts to keep Hazard away from Spanish giants Real Madrid who have indicated interest and are also tempting him with more juicy offers.

The Belgium playmaker who had earlier walked out of contract talks agreed to commit his future to the club but noted that he has been a big fan of the Spanish side.

But with his decision to remain with the West London club, the Sunday Express report that Hazard had delayed a new deal to either have his way to his dream club or get a more interesting offer from the Blues.

However, a £300, 000 a-week-deal in place for Hazard for over a year now will be increased to £350, 000 for the player if reports from the Stamford Bridge is anything to go by.

Hazard has just 18 months to see off his £200, 00 a-week deal but he might be made the wage king to earn over Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil who earns about £300, 000 at the Emirates Stadium.

With the delay in negotiations, there are growing fears that the Belgium man might still leave at the end of the day.

Chelsea midfielder Ethan Ampadu has signed for German Bundesliga side RB Leipzig on loan for the new season.

His loan deal to RB Leipzig was confirmed earlier on Monday.

The 18-year-old Chelsea player has been handed the number 26 jersey at the German club.

Ethan Ampadu was promoted to the first team at Chelsea in 2016 and he has made 12 appearances in all competitions since then.

The young Welsh international signed a new contract at Chelsea in September 2018.

While Maurizio Sarri was the Chelsea manager last season, he made just three appearances in all competitions for the west Londoners.

He would be hoping to continue his football education in Germany with RB Leipzig who will play in the Champions League.

RB Leipzig returned to the Champions League after they finished third on the German Bundesliga table last season behind Borussia Dortmund and champions Bayern Munich.

It would be their second Champions League campaign in three seasons.

In addition, RB Leipzig also reached the German Cup final before they were thrashed 3-0 by eventual winners Bayern Munich.

On Ethan Ampadu, new Chelsea manager Frank Lampard revealed that he tried to sign him on loan while he was the Derby County manager during the last campaign.

Lampard stressed the need for Ampadu to go out on loan.

Nabil Fekir

Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir will undergo his Real Betis medical ahead of his €20m move.

The news of his medical was confirmed by popular media portal Goal.

Nabil Fekir has just one year left on his current deal at Lyon and the French Ligue 1 giants were almost handicapped in letting him leave this summer rather than for free next summer.

The French midfielder is expected to be the direct replacement for Giovanni Lo Celso at Real Betis.

Lo Celso is closing in on a move to the Premier League with Tottenham Hotspur and Nabil Fekir will replace him at the club.

The Argentine international was one of the best midfielders in the Spanish La Liga last season.

He scored 15 goals for Real Betis during the last campaign.

Nabil Fekir was previously a target for reigning European champions Liverpool.

As a matter of fact, he came close to joining Liverpool last summer after the Reds agreed on a £50m deal for him.

He had done his Liverpool medical before the Reds pulled the plug on the deal due to concerns over his knee.

The French World Cup winner was linked with Liverpool again this summer but the Reds debunked those transfer rumours.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has ruled out a return to fellow Premier League club Everton for Kurt Zouma.

In his latest interview monitored by the Daily Mail, Frank Lampard revealed that he wants to keep the player at the club.

French defender Zouma has returned to Chelsea this summer after spending last season on loan at Merseyside giants Everton.

He joined Everton on a season-long loan deal on the deadline day of last summer’s transfer window.

Kurt Zouma impressed a great deal at Everton and the Toffees were interested in a permanent deal for him.

Everton manager Marco Silva had previously said that he wants to keep the defender at Goodison Park but it seems like the Portuguese tactician won’t get his wish.

Frank Lampard has shown the willingness to give Chelsea loanees from last season a chance in his squad as he settles down to his new job as the Blues manager.

He signed a three-year deal at Chelsea until the end of the 2021/22 season.

Chelsea and Lampard are somewhat handicapped in the current transfer window due to the ban slammed on them by world football’s governing body FIFA.

The Blues have taken their case to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).
