Hazard on Barca radar

Barcelona will step up their interest in Chelsea ace Eden Hazard, if they are unable to lure Philippe Coutinho away from Liverpool.

Hazard is currently out of the Chelsea side as he battles back to full fitness after undergoing ankle surgery earlier in the summer, but that is not stopping rumours linking him with a move to Barca.

Coutinho is still their number one target and after the Brazilian handed in a transfer request at Anfield, there is a good chance they will land their man before the deadline, meaning Chelsea fans can sleep easy.

However for now he remains a target with some Sunday newspapers even claiming Chelsea would cash in if Barca agreed to match their £109million valuation of the Belgium international.

Hazard was missing as Chelsea slipped to a shock opening day defeat to Burnley on Saturday, and Blues boss Antonio Conte is still unable to put a date or timescale on when he will be back in action.

"It’s difficult to give a time or a date. Difficult, difficult," Conte revealed when quizzed about the player's return in the build up to the clash against the Clarets.
