Chelsea are drawing up a list of possible replacements for Eden Hazard should the Belgium international complete a move to Real Madrid in January and Watford ’s Roberto Pereyra is one of them, according to the Daily Mirror,

The Blues’ recruitment department have been looking at targets as an insurance policy should the Belgian superstar decide to move on.

Real Madrid remain the most likely to swoop for the 27-year-old playmaker and has yet to agree a new deal, fuelling rumours that the decision-makers will cash in at the end of this season when his contract has just 12 months left to run.

The Argentina international has been in fine form for Watford this season with five goals in 11 Premier League games.

Pereyra is in his third season in England after he was signed in a £13 million deal from Juventus in 2016.

The former Juventus player was tipped for the top when he arrived in Turin but failed to spark before being shifted to Watford.
