Spanish giants Real Madrid could turn to West Ham’s Felipe Anderson if they miss out on Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.
According to Sky Sports, as cited on AS, Real are confident about their chances of landing the Belgian at the end of the season.
Hazard is said to have his heart set on a move to Spain, but Chelsea could make matters difficult for the La Liga side.
With the Blues impending transfer ban coming into play this summer, providing their appeal is unsuccessful, they could dig their heels in and keep Hazard at the club, despite his unwillingness to sign a new deal.
This would leave Real needing to look elsewhere and Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen has also been discussed, but there is a belief that Anderson would be the cheaper of the two.
The report cites a fee in the region of €75 million for the Brazilian winger, who has impressed since joining the Hammers from Lazio in the summer.
