Eden Hazard picked up an injury during the last international as he fractured his ankle in training with the Belgium national team.

Hazard won’t be back to training until mid-September and Antonio Conte is considering a move for Sevilla winger Vitolo as a short-term replacement for the Chelsea superstar.

Vitolo, full name Victor Machín Pérez, is a tricky winger who has caught the eyes of Chelsea and Atletico Madrid with his dazzling performances. He has a £35million release clause in his contract and has won the Europa League three times with Sevilla.

The 27-year-old is a right-footer who plays mainly on the left, and can also operate as a forward.
