Chelsea to look inward for Hazard replacement, eyeing EPL star

Timothy Aiyeku




English Premier League outfit Chelsea are already preparing for life without Belgium international and have decided to bring in a replacement for him as soon as the summer transfer window is reopened.

The West London side have therefore decided to look into the Premier League after identifying 21-year-old Everton forward Richarlison as the best fit.

Richarlison has been tipped to be versatile by being the goal scorer as well as playing the role of a playmaker like the Belgium international.

Richarlison who is only having his second year in England has impressed a lot with the Everton side and that is why he has been able to attract all of the attention from top league clubs.

So far this season, Richarlison has scored 11 goals in 27 appearances across all competitions for the Toffees which is solid for the Blues to hold on to.

However, Eden Hazard failed to agree on a new deal with the West London outfit and that is why he would be leaving when his contract runs out at the end of the season.

He has been tipped to be heading to the Spanish La Liga outfit Ream Madrid after confessing his love for the club, claiming it is his childhood wish.
