Cesc Fabregas is in the midst of a transfer storm amid recent speculation over his future.
West Ham are rumoured to be strongly interested in signing the 29-year-old on loan this January to add that extra bit of magic to their team for the Premier League run-in.

With new signing N’Golo Kante and Nemanja Matic holding down the two central midfield spots with a series of powerful displays Fabregas’ appearances have been limited. The Spaniard has only appeared in four of the 12 Premier League games so far this season.
