This summer should prove to be an interesting one for Chelsea Football Club.

Although the biggest question that remains to be answered surrounds whether Maurizio Sarri will be given the chance to lead the club next season, another huge question mark remains over whether Chelsea can overturn the two-window transfer window imposed upon the club by the authorities.

If they can, there’s no doubt that Chelsea need to address the problem of a squad being in decline.

Sat here in the editorial chair, I’m pretty certain that the jewel-in-our-crown, Eden Hazard will be on his bike, to Real Madrid.

If that is the case then the Chelsea hierarchy will need to move quickly to fill the void left by the 28-year-old Belgian international, to appease the support.

Today, the name of a familiar face continues to attract column inches as being the player Chelsea will reach out for.

The Spanish news source, elconfidencial, is adamant that Chelsea will do their utmost to lure Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho to Stamford Bridge, from Barcelona.

The 26-year-old hasn’t been the success Barcelona would have liked since they signed him from Liverpool and a deal could be orchestrated, as long as that transfer embargo is lifted.

But, are you of the opinion that Coutinho could fill the void left by the departing Hazard?

Please feel free to drop your views on the subject matter into the comment facility beneath this article.

  • I don’t believe that Philippe coutinho will be
    the kind of player that chelsea will need to replace
    eden hazard. It is going to be the biggest mistake if chelsea goes ahead to buy coutinho.

  • Coutinho is good but he doesn’t have that kind of gift as Hazard’s. If he is that good, why would Barcelona who did everything humanly possible to lure him to their team and eventually did want to do away with him? I tell you, if it were to be Hazard in Barca’s shirt now, of course, Barca would be adoring him like they do unto Messi. In otherwords, Coutinho doesn’t have what it takes to step into the shoes of Hazard at Chelsea.
