Chelsea target Barcelona midfielder Coutinho as Hazard replacement

Chelsea are eyeing Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

Cadena SER says Chelsea will turn their attention to Barcelona playmaker Coutinho if Eden Hazard opts for a switch to Real Madrid this summer.

Hazard has long been linked with a move to the Spanish giants, and is expected to seek pastures new at the end of the season.

Coutinho is attracting the interest of the Blues, the Brazilian having struggled to impress at Barca after making the move last season.

Hazard, meanwhile, insists he has not made a decision on his future after firing Chelsea to the Europa League final.
