Chelsea play maker Cesc Fabregas, has rejected overtures from West Ham, who plan on picking him once the transfer window opens.

Fabregas, who has lost his position in the pecking order amongst teammates, has maintained that he would prefer to stay on and fight for his place at the Stamford Bridge.

In order to create chance for a stronger midfield, Antonio Conte, boss at the Blues prefers to pick the likes of Nemanja Matic and N'Golo Kante, signed in the summer, to be part of the midfield in the new 3-4-3 formation.

So far, the new formation has been working for Chelsea, one that ensured that the Blues thrashed Everton 5-0. For Fabregas, it's been a not quite impressive season, as he has been unable to feature for complete 90 minutes in a Premier League match since Conte took over the leadership reins at Chelsea.

And while interests are emerging from both West Ham and another Chinese club, indications emerging could see the former Arsenal star snub the two clubs.

The Slaven Bilic side has had a really poor start to the season and it would not help in luring the midfielder to their club either. West Ham sit at the 17th place on the Premier League table, and this would not be any great attraction to the player.

However, suggestions are indicating that the midfielder could leave Chelsea by January to any other bigger clubs in the Premier League when the transfer window opens.

Chelsea is also open to a loan move for the Fabregas, especially as Conte looks to free up space in his squad and would not hesitate to subsidize his salary if he eventually agrees.

In this season so far, Fabregas has been able to make just four appearances for his team, although playing at the EFL cup has offered him some quality game time. Fabregas has a contract with Chelsea until 2019 and believes that he should have made his mark before then to bring him back into the long term plans of Conte.
