Chelsea Line Up Move To Bring Player Back To The Club

Antonio Conte has often complained about his lack of signings but the Italian is hoping to turn that arounds soon. The Chelsea boss is eyeing a move for a former Blues player currently in Germany.

So last summer Antonio Conte was 'only' allowed to spend €200 million and, like Jose Mourinho, has often complained that he doesn't have the squad depth that he would like and doesn't seem to be happy with the players that his club sign.

That was no more evident than when the club signed Ross Barkley for £15 million earlier this week. The Italian was asked about the signing and replied, "It's the club that signs the players, not me. Recruitment is not my job."

It doesn't sound like the manager had too much to do with the signing, even though it looked like the former Everton player was going to go to Stamford Bridge in the summer before delaying his move.

Now when the Blues sign anyone, or are linked with them, we have to ask if Conte wants them. That said, does the former Juventus boss want Thorgan Hazard back at the club? German paper Bild report that Chelsea are eyeing a move to bring the Borussia Monchengladbach player back.

Hazard, younger brother of former Premier League Player of the Year winner Eden, signed for Chelsea in 2012 and was on their books until 2015, when he moved to Germany without making an appearance for the Blues.

The Belgian initially joined Monchengladbach, yes I 100% copy and pasted it both times because I'm never spelling that correctly, on loan in 2014 before joining permanently a year later.

He has thoroughly impressed during his time on the continent and this season has six goals and three assists to his name.

Thorgan is unlikely to be a guaranteed starter for the Blues but Champions League football and a reunion with Eden and youngest brother Kylian, who is also on the books at Chelsea, could persuade him to move.

Monchengladbach, actually spelt it correctly on my own that time, would be unlikely to want to sell the player but as always money talks in these situations.

Premier League beware, there may soon be more Hazards at Stamford Bridge.
