Nicolas Pepe - Lille

Nicolas Pepe is the man who Chelsea should sign to replace Eden Hazard this summer.

He’s super fast, he’s a deadly finisher on the evidence of this season.

He’s a dribbler who can attack space without the ball or defenders when he’s got it.

With better teammates around him, there’s no limit to how impressive he could look.

He can even take a nice free kick or penalty too.

Winger might not be our highest priority given we have Christian Pulisic. We have other areas where reinforcements are needed, and we might look to back Callum Hudson-Odoi.

We might not even be able to sign anyone at all. But if we can, and we want a true rising star to step into Hazard’s shoes, Pepe looks the real deal.
