Philippe Coutinho

The West London outfit Chelsea seem to have given up on their bid to retain Belgium international Eden Hazard and might be preparing a replacement for him ahead of the coming season.

Arguably, Eden Hazard is the best player at the Stamford Bridge as he has been scoring important goals this season and has provided a number of assists to help his team with the push.

With suggestions that he would be leaving the club after failing to extend his contract, the West London outfit are already preparing a bid for former Liverpool star and Brazilian international Philippe Coutinho.

The Brazilian left the Anfield to join Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona but he seems to be having a frustrating spell at the club because of his lack of playing time and will seek a move away.

Chelsea is the second Premier League side that Philippe Coutinho has been linked to after Man United.

There are therefore suggestions that he would be a perfect replacement for Eden Hazard because if his quality and his knowledge of the Premier League which would not be new to him.

However, Eden Hazard is being linked with a move to Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid at the end of the season.
