Chelsea eye Riyad Mahrez move

Chelsea target Mahrez

Chelsea have reportedly earmarked Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez as a potential replacement for Eden Hazard.

The Algerian international has been closely monitored by Blues scouts in recent months following his fine start to the Premier League campaign.

According to The Star, Blues owner Roman Abramovich is a huge admirer of the 24-year-old and may seek to bring in the player during the summer transfer window.

Adding to this, the arrival of Mahrez could well see the departure of Belgian ace Hazard, who is thought to be keen on a fresh challenge away from Stamford Bridge.

Mahrez has notched 15 goals for the Foxes this term.
