Stamford Bridge side opt to keep it in the family.
Chelsea look set to increase their Belgian contingent as they prepare a move for Lens starlet Thorgan Hazard – brother of current Blues star Eden.
Eden Hazard, 21, completed a big-money move to Stamford Bridge earlier this summer after months of speculation over his future.
Chelsea beat off competition from a host of top European clubs, including Premier League rivals Manchester United and Manchester City, to land the playmaker from Lille.
And according to French newspaper L’Equipe, Chelsea will now enter negotiations with Lens to sign the Belgium international’s 19-year-old brother Thorgan.
Chelsea clearly look to be looking to buy as many talented individuals as possible this summer whilst simultaneously adding to their ever growing Belgian contingent.
Thorgan Hazard has come through the ranks at Ligue 2 side Lens and last term broke into first team action whilst also representing his country at Under 19 level. Clearly the teenager is still a way behind his older brother Eden, who has already made an impact at the highest level but by all accounts the attacking midfielder is considered a hot prospect for the future.
Thorgan would become Chelsea’s fifth Belgian, where he would join his brother Eden, Romelu Lukaku, Kevin du Bruyne and keeper Thibaut Courtois, who is currently on another loan spell at Atletico Madrid.
