Eden Hazard has taken to social media to ask for the support of Chelsea fans as he bids to win the race to be the cover star of Fifa 17.

The Belgian playmaker is in the running to become the main star of the computer game as he competes with a host of other stars including Manchester United striker Anthony Martial.

Hazard is clearly keen to be named as the winner – and he used his personal Instagram account to send a message to his fans on Friday afternoon.

Hazard shared the snap above on the app and wrote: “Here is my pack shot! It would be amazing to be the first Belgian global cover star and represent @chelseafc and @belgianreddevils …You can vote more than once!! #FIFA17HAZARD”

The Belgium international is currently on his summer holidays before he prepares to report back to Cobham for his first taste of playing under new manager Antonio Conte.

Hazard has been given an extended summer break by his club after his involvement in Euro 2016 with Belgium.

The playmaker was linked with a move away from Chelsea during the course of last season but it appears that he is ready to stay and fight for his place under new boss Conte.
