Kevin de Bruyne's agent will fly into London in the coming weeks to discuss the Belgian's future with Chelsea.
De Bruyne was the subject of interest from a host of clubs over the summer having spent last season on loan at Werder Bremen, however Chelsea opted against letting him go.
Most expected that to prompt an extended run in the first team for De Bruyne, however he has made just two Premier League starts this season and fell out of favour with boss Jose Mourinho who questioned his work ethic following a Capital One Cup tie against Swindon.
Despite the Special One insisting that the former Genk player had impressed him sufficiently in training that he would be considered for a first team spot once more, and the fact that he was used as a substitute in Chelsea's 1-0 Champions League win over Steaua Bucharest on Tuesday, it would appear a January move is likely.
Reports surfaced last week that De Bruyne was keen to leave Chelsea permanently, and now his representative Patrick de Koste has confirmed he will hold talks with the club - and revealed the if his client is 'granted a transfer' he will speak to a host of German clubs.
I am going to fly over to London to find a proper solution with Chelsea," he told Cologne tabloid EXPRESS.
"Should Kevin be granted a transfer, I will be immediately on the phone to Michael Reschke (Leverkusen's general manager). We have a great relationship with him.
"Clubs like Borussia Dortmund, Schalke and Wolfsburg have also enquired.
"Kevin will decide which club offers the best future for him on a sporting level."
