English Premier League (EPL) club West Ham United could offer Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas an escape route should the player find it hard to regularly make the first-team at Stamford Bridge. The former Barcelona man has failed to impress at the Bridge under new manager Antonio Conte and a move across the city could be a good decision to revive his career.
The 29-year-old was thrown into the first-team by Conte against Arsenal on Saturday. However Chelsea were humbled by the Gunners 3-0 and Fabregas was not able to replicate his best form on the pitch, as reported by ESPN.
West Ham has been monitoring this situation for a long time now and wants to make a move for the player in January, 2017. They want to add the creativity of Fabregas to their midfield, which could inject a fresh life to the team, according to The Mirror.
Conte has so far struggled to find a suitable role for Fabregas in his starting eleven. The Italian has feared that including the Spanish midfielder will expose certain vulnerabilities of his team. After The Blues’ humiliation at the Emirates Stadium by Arsenal, questions will be asked again as Fabregas failed to produce at the time of need.
The former Arsenal man was substituted just 10 minutes into the second half. This has again created rumors of Fabregas leaving the club in the near future.
If the man from Arenys de Mar, Spain is sent back to the bench following the Arsenal defeat, he could decide to jump ship across London to West Ham to revive his career. The Hammers are currently struggling to find their feet this season in the Premier League and the inclusion of the former World Cup winner could help save their season.
