Chelsea are seemingly unwilling to part ways with their talisman as they cannot replace him and therefore may keep hold of their talisman for another season before his contract runs out.
Hazard, who has scored 13 goals and added 11 assists in 29 league matches this season, has so far refused to sign a new deal with the west London club.
And the Blues’ refusal to sell their prize asset has prompted Zidane to instead target Anderson.
The Brazilian is enjoying a good debut season for the Hammers, scoring eight goals in 31 matches.
However, he recently said he wanted to emulate the success of Paolo Di Canio and stay in east London and stay for the foreseeable future.
He said: “I just want to do my best for the club, win as many titles as possible. I am happy here, I am not looking for something else.”
