By | February 6, 2019

Chelsea have been rumoured with an ambitious move to secure services of Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez, in what would be a €150 million deal.

According to Calciomercato, Barcelona and Bayern Munich are also keen on the player.

Spanish giants would reportedly sell if their humongous asking price will be met.

Spaniard has been impressive in the middle of the park for Diego Simeone’s side in recent years and his performances have clearly not been going unnoticed with hosts of European teams are ready to secure his services.

While Saul Niguez would not be a direct replacement for Hazard, should the Belgian go on and complete his dream move to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window, like many are tipping him to do, then the Blues could have some big money to spend.

The Catalan club have been long-term admirers of Atletico Madrid star and may appear to be the most obvious next step as his progress continues.

The player is unlikely to be short of suitors if he does decide to depart from Atletico Madrid in the near future
