Chelsea are lining up potential replacements for long-term Real Madrid target Eden Hazard.

The Belgium international has been on the Madrid based club’s shortlist for several seasons and that is not going to change in the upcoming summer transfer window.

A source close Cengiz Under has revealed to Turkish-Football that Chelsea has enquired about the availability of the Turkey international.

Under has been linked with several Premier League sides including Arsenal in recent months.

The 21-year-old would be an ideal fit at Chelsea as he can play comfortably on either wing. The Blues are expected to make changes to their ageing squad over the summer.

Hazard, Pedro and Willian’s contracts with the Blues expire next year.

Under has established himself as a first-team regular at Roma this season and has been in impressive form in the UEFA Champions League with three goals and two assists in six appearances.

The former Altinordu star is currently sidelined with an injury and missed his side’s victory over FC Porto last week,

Under has over three-years remaining on his contract with Roma and is in talks with the Serie A giants over a new deal.

Chelsea are back in action this week in the Europa League when they take on Malmo at Stamford Bridge.
