Chelsea winger wanted by Werder Bremen on loan

Published Add your comment

Werder Bremen are ready to make a January loan move for Chelsea winger Kevin de Bruyne, according to

The Belgian international enjoyed a successful stint playing at the Weserstadion during the 2012/13 campaign, scoring 10 goals in 33 Bundesliga appearances, which prompted his promotion to the Blues first-team this season.

Jose Mourinho was keen to give the 22-year-old an opportunity to impress at Stamford Bridge - amid reported interest in De Bruyne's signature from German giants Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund - and started him in both of Chelsea's opening two Premier League games.

However, the attacking midfielder has failed to impress, and found himself demoted to train with Chelsea's reserve team, following a number of poor performances.

De Bruyne was completely omitted from Chelsea's Champions League squad that travelled to Romania and beat Steaua Bucharest 4-0 on Tuesday night, with the youngster posting a picture on Twitter of him watching the game on television at home.

Werder Bremen are ready to capitalise on the player's uncertain future, and will offer De Bruyne the chance to return to Germany on loan when the transfer window reopens in the New Year, as confirmed by the club's general manager Thomas Eichin.

"If Kevin is dissatisfied, we are happy to be the first contact," he told BILD. "I have contact with the consultant and am informed about Kevin's situation at Chelsea.

"I know Kevin. If he doesn't play, it's certainly a big problem for him. We have to wait and see what happens in the winter. We will be present if there is a way to get him."
