Ian Wright: If Hazard leaves Chelsea, this is the perfect player to replace him

With Eden Hazard touted with a move away, the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that Antonio Conte can secure a decent replacement if he does depart…

Indeed, the Belgian would be a tough player to replace, given that he is undoubtedly Chelsea’s best player – but it appears as though Arsenal legend Ian Wright has the perfect solution.

Speaking via the Sun, Wright has revealed that he thinks that Arsenal ace Alexis Sanchez could be the perfect man to replace Eden Hazard this summer.

He said: “Alexis has said he wants to stay in London and win things. If he wants to do that then he goes to Chelsea”.

“Real Madrid are courting Eden Hazard. Who better to replace him than Sanchez?”, Wright continued.

Indeed, it is tough to argue with Wright, and there is even an argument to be made that Sanchez would be an upgrade on Hazard. Stats wise, Sanches has scored more goals and assisted more than Hazard has this season – with the Chilean’s influence undoubted at the Emirates.

Of course, stats do not tell the whole story – but our landlord thinks that Chelsea would find it tough to find a better replacement than Sanchez.
