Chelsea Linked With Shock Move For Premier League Striker

"I'm sure that there are a lot players linked with us".

Visiting goalkeeper Artur Boruc was in fine form throughout and Chelsea's luck looked to be out when Ruben Loftus-Cheek struck the woodwork early in the second half.

Chelsea FC have been forced to contend with relentless speculation linking the Blues star with a move to the Champions League holders over the past few seasons.

Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley has showered praise on club talisman Eden Hazard after his goal against Bournemouth in the League Cup.

Chelsea have reportedly offered to make Hazard the highest paid player in the club's history in a bid to keep him.

Boruc was beaten by Loftus-Cheek's low strike after the interval, but the upright came to Bournemouth's rescue before Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri turned to Hazard for inspiration.

Sarri has explained that Christensen, who is now out with an injury, is an important player for the club and that the centre-back's future lies at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea return to Premier League action against Leicester this weekend, having successfully booked their spot in the Carabao Cup semi-finals on Wednesday.

Sarri said: "I think he's a very good midfielder but he is suitable for a midfield with two midfielders".

The player made his first league start for Chelsea in November previous year, when Antonio Conte's side recorded a 1-1 draw against Liverpool.

Chelsea take on Leicester City on Saturday before a Boxing Day clash against Watford.

Eden Hazard, on the other hand, has suggested that Drinkwater's inclusion meant that only he and Alvaro Morata would be match winners.

'He told me that he likes very much to play there, ' said Sarri. But the plea from us City fans is for Guardiola to afford both the competition and the opponents sufficient respect and to pick his best available players.
