West Ham linked with audacious Fabregas movePublished November 8, 2016
Cesc Fabregas’ time at Chelsea could be drawing to a close, with media reports suggesting that West Ham are one of a number of clubs interested in signing the midfielder during the January window.
Despite an impressive showing in the recent EFL Cup win over Leicester, the former Barcelona man has been unable to force his way into Antonio Conte’s upwardly mobile side and could look to secure a move away from Stamford Bridge over the winter.
The Daily Mirror writes that with Chelsea keen to offload Fabregas on loan in January, West Ham could be set to take advantage of a deal that would see the Stamford Bridge outfit subsidise the player’s wages in return for assurances over game-time.

Such a tempting offer has alerted other clubs to the 29-year-old’s situation too, although West Ham’s pursuit of potential replacements for the heavily-courted Dimitri Payet and their London location may make them an attractive bet.
Fabregas has three years to run on his current contract in west London, and is believed to be keen on seeing out the deal if possible.
