English Premier League side seem to have identified their replacement for Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas as they hope to land him in this winter transfer window.
Cesc Fabregas only left the West London side in the last couple of hours to French Ligue 1 outfit where he will reunite with his former Arsenal teammate Thierry Henry who is now the manager of the club.
The Spanish man was in need of regular playing time and that could not be guaranteed him under the Italian manager Maurizio Sarri, in addition to his inability to secure just one-year deal from the Stamford Bridge.
There is a doctrine in the West London side which refuses the cub from handing more than a year contract extension to players who are 3o years of age or more.
However, reports claim that the Blues have identified Zenit’s Leandro Paredes as a possible replacement for the former Barcelona man.
Leandro Paredes is a player with big quality and he is undoubtedly one of the best in the Russian top flight.
The Blues are willing o cash in on him so as to land him before this winter transfer window closes.
Meanwhile, the West London side are keen to win Arsenal in the race for the top four spots as they have the Champions League qualification in sight.
