Former Everton, Aston Villa and Scotland striker, Andy Gray has urged Chelsea to sign Crystal Palace and Ivory Coast forward, Wilfried Zaha as Eden Hazard’s replacement at Stamford Bridge.

Hazard has long been linked with Real Madrid, with manager Zinedine Zidane being an admirer.

The 28-year-old has made no secret of his desire to one day play for Real Madrid.

The Belgium international will enter the final year of his contract at Stamford Bridge this summer.

That means it will be the last transfer window the Blues can ask for a big transfer fee for the winger.

However, Gray believes that Zaha could be the ideal player who can replace Hazard at Stamford Bridge once he finally leaves.

“Well they [Chelsea] might buy Wilfried Zaha, somebody was suggesting to me,” Gray was quoted by Express UK as saying.

“Maybe it [replacement for Hazard] is just the other side of London.”
