Paul Merson believes that Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois could both be on their ways out of Chelsea FC this summer.

The Blues have struggled to produce consistent form this season under Antonio Conte and have found themselves to be off the pace in the race for the Premier League.

Indeed, Chelsea FC slumped to a disappointing 3-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge last weekend to deal a severe blow to their hopes of securing Champions League qualification for next season.

It looks as though the Blues are going to have to settle for a spot in the Europa League for next season, unless they are somehow able to catch Tottenham in the race for fourth place.

And former Arsenal star Merson believes that could spell the end for Hazard and Courtois, who have both been linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge in recent weeks.

Writing in his column for the Daily Star, Merson said: “Antonio Conte is on his way out, but I can’t see the owner spending bundles of money in the summer.

“I can see Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois leaving.”

Chelsea FC are currently preparing for their home clash against West Ham United in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues were in fine form last season as they won the Premier League in Conte’s first campaign in charge, but they have struggled to replicate that form this time around.
