Chelsea transfer news: PSG boss on Hazard, next Ferdinand targeted, Lukaku bid?

All the latest Chelsea transfer news: Blanc's statement on Eden Hazard, Tottenham Hotspur's link to Blues striker and Manchester United veteran clone.

Paris Saint-Germain's love affair with coveted attacker Eden Hazard continues.

Chelsea had reportedly been braced for an estimated £60 million to £70 million bid for the Belgium international, but the Ligue 1 kings appear to have received the message from Stamford Bridge - the forward is not for sale.

But that has not diluted their affection for the player.

PSG manager Laurent Blanc said: "Eden Hazard? He is a top player. But what is certain is that Chelsea wants to keep him."

The Daily Mail cite Chelsea as a possible destination for precociously talented teenager Reece Oxford, 15, who has been likened to Rio Ferdinand. Oxford is reportedly one of the "hottest prospects" at the Boleyn Ground's academy.

One player already signed by the West London club, Cesc Fabregas, has gotten his future team-mates excited.

Cesar Azpilicueta said: "I have congratulated him and I am very happy because we have signed a great player who is going to help us grow a lot collectively.

"I haven’t had to tell him much about the Premier League because he knows English football perfectly."

There may be activity when it comes to transfers away from the club, with Tottenham Hotspur supposedly increasingly keen to take Romelu Lukaku on a permanent deal, say The Express.

And finally, a Madrid legend informs Chelsea precisely what they can expect from Diego Costa here.
