Thorgan Hazard could be heading back to join brother Eden in England, with the Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder hinting at a Premier League return.
Hazard has already taken in one spell at Stamford Bridge, but left in 2015 without making a senior appearance.
Proving himself in Germany, while earning international recognition with Belgium, has brought the talented playmaker back onto the radar of English clubs, with Leicester another of those said to be keen.
Hazard is ruling nothing out at this stage, telling Sport/Foot magazine: “England is appealing, but when you speak to players who play there, they also tell you that Germany seems like a great league.
“We have the best stadiums, the best infrastructures. The atmosphere is also ‘hotter’ than in England”.
Pressed further on whether he feels now is the right time to take another step forward in his career, Hazard added: “I listen to what is being said about me, but it’s not something I bother myself with. My father deals with off the pitch stuff.
“Apparently a few clubs are interested, but we’ll analyse all that at the end of the season.”
Hazard is currently in the middle of a campaign which has delivered another eight goals and four assists with Monchengladbach.
His creativity could lead him back to Chelsea eventually, with brothers Eden and Kylian already in west London .
It could even come to pass that he is acquired by the Blues to fill the boots of a fellow family member, with Real Madrid continuing to be heavily linked with a big-money move for Eden.
For now, though, Hazard remains fully focused on the present, with there little point in being dragged into a debate regarding his future until the next window of opportunity swings open.
