The paper says that Hazard has turned down a bumper contract extension and Mourinho is ready to pounce with a British record offer to land the 26-year-old.
Hazard staying at Stamford Bridge is crucial for the Blues who are going through a wobble this season.
Spanish website Don Balon - whose reputation is not the best - reported in November that Manchester United were preparing to offer £177 million for Asensio, plus a weekly wage of £461,000, which if true could leave Tottenham with an uphill battle should they decide to pursue a deal for the eight-cap Spain global.
It is said that the Frenchman requested the signing of Hazard last summer, only for club president Florentino Perez to decline his request.
Meanwhile, Hazard has been the first to send signals, admitting incredible admiration for Zizou through the English media.

The Belgium global is said to have rejected the offer of a £300,000-a-week deal at Stamford Bridge, leading to interest from Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.
Asensio was mostly used as a substitute in important matches this season and he has reportedly told chairman Florentino Perez that he would leave the club if Eden Hazard joined.More news: Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (FCX) - Active Stock Momentum
