Don’t worry Blues fans… Thorgan, not Eden!
Read more Chelsea transfer news.
(Apologies for the slightly misleading headline…)
Chelsea are planning on loaning Eden Hazard’s younger brother Thorgan out on loan to a Premier League club next season, the Mirror is reporting.
The 20-year-old has shone on loan to Belgian side Zulte Waregem, scoring nine goals in the league, and he was recently voted the best player in the league for 2013.
He is similar to style to his brother, and has exceptionally quick feet and raw pace – although his skills are not yet as honed as the Chelsea superstar.
To aid his development, Jose Mourinho wants the younger Hazard to spend the season at a fellow Premier League club, much like Romelu Lukaku has at West Brom and Everton for the past two seasons.
There will no doubt be plenty of suitors for the talented Belgian, and Chelsea fans will be eager to see at close hand whether Thorgan has the ability to eventually line up alongside Eden in the Blues attack.
