Chelsea are targeting Philippe Coutinho as a potential replacement for Eden Hazard, according to reports.

Hazard has sparked fresh speculation surrounding his future this week by revealing that he has already made a decision about whether or not he will leave Chelsea at the end of the season.

Chelsea will be forced to make a decision as the Belgium international will only have a year remaining on his contract this summer. But reports claim that the west London club will demand in excess of £100 million for the 28-year-old.

Chelsea have already secured the signing of Christian Pulisic in a £58m deal from Borussia Dortmund. But according to The Independent, Chelsea are also keeping tabs on Coutinho with the view of potentially making a move in the summer.

The Brazil international has struggled to make a huge impact at Camp Nou since his £142m move from Liverpool just over a year ago. And reports in Spain have claimed that the 26-year-old will assess his options at the end of the season.
