Belgium newspaper Her Laatste Nieuws reports that Chelsea are willing to let Thorgan Hazard, younger brother of Eden Hazard, go out on loan next season.

Borussia Monchengladbach, Schalke, Valencia and Wolfsburg all vying to land the 21-year-old.

The 21-year-old joined French side Lens aged 14 from hometown club Stade Brainios. Thorgan signed a three-year pro contract with Lens in 2010, although he failed to break into the Lens senior team on a regular basis.

Following the transfer of his brother to Chelsea in July 2012, the West London based snapped up Thorgan on an undisclosed fee a month later and sent the Belgian on a season-long loan to Belgian Pro League side Zulte Waregem to develop himself and get more game time.

Having been sent back to Waregem on a season-long loan last season, the 21-year-old enjoyed another successful spell with the Belgian side, scoring 5 goals in 9 appearances in the Belgian Pro League and scored 2 goals  in 6 appearances in the Europa League.

Much like his older brother Eden, Thorgan remains one of the hottest prospects in Europe, with many clubs such as Borussia Monchengladbach, Valencia, Schalke and Wolfsburg all interested in the youngster.

Hazard jnr operates as an attacking midfielder and a winger, like his brother and possesses frightening pace which can leave many a defender behind.

What’s more, Hazard jnr has natural confidence and the willingness to be audacious in his style of play, as seen through his use of skills and long-range shooting which he can use to deadly effect.

The 21-year-old is a threat from counter-attacks and has the ability to thread forward passes  and crosses to team mates from central and wide positions, something which Bundesliga sides Gladbach, Wolfsburg and Schalke as well as LaLiga side Valencia are looking for in a potential winger/attacking midfielder.

Most importantly, he remains a key team player to any side and has the capability to prove himself at the top level given the chance.
