Eden Hazard admits he wants one of the best strikers in the world to join him at Chelsea


Chelsea attacking midfielder Eden Hazard has urged his Belgium teammate Romelu Lukaku to consider a return to Stamford Bridge.

The striker stole the headlines after scoring two goals against Republic of Ireland at Euro 2016.

He will certainly leave Everton during the summer transfer window and recent reports have claimed that a return to Chelsea could be on the cards.

"I don't know, I don't want to talk about this," Hazard told Sky Sports News HQ.

But he then added: "Romelu [Lukaku] is a big striker, he's a good guy and a good friend of mine.

"It's always good to play with the best in the world.

"For a striker it's great confidence to score goals. Lukaku showed how good he is [with his brace against the Republic of Ireland].

"When a striker doesn't score, he tends to get criticism, but he can take it.

"He is mentally strong and I am sure he will be difference for us in each game, I hope."
