FC Barcelona are set to test Chelsea FC’s resolve to keep Eden Hazard in the summer transfer window, according to a report in Spain.

Spanish media outlet Sport, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that FC Barcelona have been looking into the possibility of a sensational swoop to sign the Chelsea FC number 10 this summer.

The same article states that the Catalan side have identified the Belgium international as a player capable of improving Ernesto Valverde’s squad ahead of the new La Liga season.

According the same story, Hazard would be open to a potential summer move after the Blues finished in fifth spot in the Premier League last term to miss out on a Champions League spot.

Hazard has been regularly linked with a move to FC Barcelona’s bitter rivals Real Madrid over the past three or four seasons but a deal has failed to materlaise.

In addition, the Belgian forward is rumoured to be a boyhood Real Madrid fan given his love for their former playmaker and manager Zinedine Zidane.

FC Barcelona have also been linked with a swoop to sign Chelsea FC winger Willian and the Blues were reported to have turned down a £50m bid from the La Liga side last term.
