Chelsea are trying their level best to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season, but with the future of Eden Hazard uncertain, the Blues need striking options.

Chelsea have been hit with a transfer ban too, but the appeal on the same is ongoing, so the club continues to be linked with players, and they continue to be searching actively for them.

‘Impossible to find another Hazard’ – Sarri

If Hazard does go, it leaves a massive void in the former Premier League Champions’ team, and to fill it, they may choose youth over experience.

ESPN are reporting that Chelsea are eyeing a move for Borussia Dortmund striker Alexander Isak to solve their problems in attack.

The 19-year-old has been dubbed the next Zlatan Ibrahimovic for being Swedish and also scoring spectacular goals like the great Zlatan.

A brilliant loan spell at Dutch side Willem II has yielded 11 goals from 11 games, and brought with it interest from teams such as Chelsea.

FOX Sports Asia Predicted Rating: 3/5 – If the transfer ban gets lifted, Chelsea should move for this youngster as his goals could be key for their season. If Hazard and Callum Hudson-Odoi both move on, the new Zlatan could just become the go-to man for the Londoners.
