Fabregas to reject Hammers approach

West Ham United are set to miss out on the signing of Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas. The Spain international will only leave Stamford Bridge for a top European club in January.

Fabregas, 29, has been heavily tipped to depart the Blues in 2017 having struggled to attain regular game time under Antonio Conte.

Recent reports suggested that the Hammers could lodge a loan attempt for the playmaker with the Blues prepared to subsidize part of his £160,000 weekly wages.

However, according to The Star, the former Arsenal man is not keen on a move to East London, and will rather pursue his future with one of Europe's elite clubs, preferably Juventus.

N'Golo Kante and Nemanja Matic have adopted well to Conte's 3-4-3 formation this term, and it is highly unlikely Fabregas will retain a starting role in the near future.
