Chelsea to replace Hakim Ziyech with Serie A star?

Lorenzo Insigne news

Insigne wanted by Chelsea

Chelsea could reportedly replace Hakim Ziyech with Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne next summer.

Ziyech has endured a tough career with the west London club, and there are already question marks over his future.

According to Fichajes, the Blues could contemplate his sale next summer amid his limited impact on the playing field.

It is added that the club could land Insigne as a replacement. The Italian can sign a pre-contract with a foreign club in January.

Insigne has been a key player for the Serie A outfit, but he has yet to commit to extend his deal beyond the current campaign.

He is reportedly eyeing a new challenge in a fresh league. The Blues believe his experience would be handy in a young attack.

The hierarchy feel his arrival won't necessarily disrupt the progress of the attacking duo of Mason Mount and Kai Havertz.

The Blues recently jumped to the top of the Premier League standings after a 3-1 win over Southampton at Stamford Bridge.
