Chelsea will make a move for Roma ace Cengiz Under if they lose Eden Hazard to Real Madrid, according to a report.

Roma star Cengiz Under has reportedly been earmarked as a possible replacement for Eden Hazard should the Belgian forward leave Chelsea in the summer.

The Blues are bracing themselves for an offer from Real Madrid for their star performer, who has made no secret of his desire to join the European champions.

Hazard will leave a huge void to be filled in Chelsea's frontline, but Turkish Football claims that the Premier League side already have some targets in mind.

Turkey international Under, already previously linked with Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, has a combined 12 goals and assists in the Champions League and Serie A this term.

Chelsea are ready to bid for the 21-year-old, it is claimed, with Roma set to make a big profit on the £12m paid to land the youngster from Turkish outfit Istanbul Basaksehir in 2017.

Under, tied down to the Giallorossi until 2022, may be offered a bumper new contract before the end of the season to keep him out of Chelsea's clutches.
