Chelsea are reportedly considering bringing back Eden Hazard as the Belgium international continues to be linked with a move away from Real Madrid.

Hazard has endured a difficult two seasons at Madrid since joining in an £88m deal, with the 30-year-old playing just 21 times last season in an injury-hit season. Over the course of the two seasons, Hazard has scored just five goals, despite scoring double figures in six of the seven seasons he spent at Stamford Bridge.

According to AS, Hazard could potentially make his way to the Premier League for as low as £51m this summer. The report adds that Carlo Ancelotti's side are keen to offload Hazard this summer, but acknowledge that the Blues might not be able to shell out the money, especially since they are chasing £170m-rated Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

Harry Kane and Robert Lewandowski have also been linked with a move to Chelsea, as Thomas Tuchel looks to close the gap with Manchester City ahead of the new season.

The Blues brought in Timo Werner last summer, but the Germany international failed to live up to expectations, and scored just six times in 35 Premier League games. According to an exclusive 90Min report, Werner isn't happy at Chelsea, and could leave if the Champions League winners sign a new striker.
