The topic of losing Eden Hazard is, naturally, a worrying thought for Chelsea fans, and recent comments from the Belgian will only make that worse. He seems to be open to the idea of a move away, having recently cited his interest in winning the Balon d’Or – a trophy that has rarely been won by players outside of La Liga.
If he were to quit, there is no doubting that it would be a major blow for the club, but it would be softened somewhat if the Blues were able to bring in a top-tier replacement.
We recently made the case that PSV man Hirving Lozano would be an ideal choice, and it appears as though a majority of polled Chelsea fans agree. We asked fans whether he’d be a good replacement, in and in response, 56% of those polled have revealed that they think he would.
Lozano, who is rated at £36 million by Transfer Markt, has enjoyed a tremendous start to the season, having bagged 7 goals and 1 assist already. Displaying raw pace, energy, technical ability and overall quality, the Mexican is generating the same level of hype as Eden Hazard did when he was back at Lille.
He’s got a long way to go yet, but in terms of sheer talent, he’s got it all – and many Chelsea fans view him as the ideal replacement for Hazard.
