EXCLUSIVE! Eden Hazard has no interest in joining West Ham but would be 'open' to Chelsea return
Former Chelsea star Eden Hazard has reportedly no interest in joining West Ham in January.
West Ham manager David Moyes would like to add to his attacking options with Said Benrahma set to feature in the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon with Algeria.
The Hammers have already made a direct enquiry to Real Madrid to ask about Hazard's availability but their £21m offer was immediately turned down.
Real Madrid want to keep him and the Belgian superstar has his heart set on turning his career around at the Santiago Bernabeu and make his mark.
But the influential attacking midfielder is understood to be willing to listen to offers from Chelsea next summer should the Blues wish to bring him back.
Hazard spent seven seasons at Chelsea before making a dream switch to Real Madrid in 2019 but Cristiano Ronaldo has so far proven to be a tough act to follow for the 30-year old.
A combination of injuries, poor form and Carlo Ancelotti's lack of faith in him have limited him to only 12 appearances so far this season, with Hazard coming off the bench in seven of them.
