8. Eden Hazard – $76 million
When Eden Hazard first moved to Chelsea he took the Premier League by storm. At his very best Hazard is an unplayable winger who teases and torments defenders before assisting or scoring goals. That is the player Hazard was week after week last season as he was the Blues outstanding player last season as Chelsea won the title. This season though Hazard has simply been missing. Injuries seem to have played their part, but now back and healthy he needs to refind that form that makes him one of the most expensive players in the world. If he can do so then Chelsea can surge up the table over the second half of the Premier League season.
