Hazard, meanwhile, has not scored in 11 games for club and country but Kompany insists he could not be playing under a better manager.

"I want him here, of course, but I want him here if he wants to stay here", Sarri said in a press conference. When such a brilliant player has a dip in form like this, it is up to the manager to push him.

However, Sarri said Chelsea's offer was on the table and now the ball lay in Hazard's court.

Hazard has gone six league games without a goal after starting the season in virtuosic fashion, notching seven goals and three assists in his first eight games. "I can't remember him having that a lot in his career".

"I know very well that there are discussions between the club and the manager of Eden every week, I think, so if there is something new, the club will call me immediately". Kovacic would not be the best option to get in place of the Belgian, but Asensio would be a great addition. The future is bright for him'.

Hazard will hope to lead Chelsea to victory when they tackle Premier League leaders, Manchester City on Saturday. Sarri told the press before the Blues 2-1 defeat away to Wolves yesterday.

Chelsea provisional squad: Kepa, Caballero, Rudiger, Alonso, Fabregas, Jorginho, Kante, Barkley, Hazard, Pedro, Kovacic, Giroud, Zappacosta, Willian, Cahill, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Morata, Luiz, Emerson Palmieri, Loftus-Cheek, Hudson-Odoi, Ampadu, Bulka.

His parent club, Real Madrid, hold the stance that he will struggle to force his way back into the starting XI at the Bernabeu and therefore are hopeful of selling the Croatian when his deal at Stamford Bridge expires.
