Chelsea are beginning to heed to warnings of having a perfect replacement for Eden Hazard so as to provide a cover for him and not suffer when he is unavailable.

The Belgium international has been a major part of the Blues team with his new found form helping to lift the Maurizio Sarri side before picking a back injury.

Before his injury, pundits warned the Stamford Bridge side not to overburden and rely on the Belgium man so as not to lose their fight for this season’s title bid.

With Hazard already being linked away from the club, it has become necessary for the West London side to find a replacement and Roberto Pereyra has been sighted as a good covert for Hazard.

The Watford player has caught the attention of the Stamford Bridge owners and promises not to be a difficult deal for Chelsea to strike.

Pereyra has scored on several occasions for Watford this season with impressive play, making him a focus in the search for Hazard’s replacement.

There are suggestions that the West London team will continue to monitor the progress of the player and will do well by moving for him should he remain consistent in his goalscoring form.
