Kevin De Bruyne’s agent is set to meet with Chelsea to ask for a transfer away from Stamford Bridge in January.

Speaking to German newspaper Express last week, Patrick de Koster said: “I am going to fly over to London to find a proper solution with Chelsea.”

De Bruyne has failed to impress manager Jose Mourinho and has been given limited first team football. The attacking midfielder struggled to assert himself in Chelsea’s 2-1 loss to Sunderland after extra-time in the League Cup last night.

The young Belgium is a regular starter for his national side and may prefer a move away in search of regular football, ahead of the World Cup in Brazil.

The 22-year-old has made just nine appearances in all competitions for Chelsea this season, compared to eight starts for Belgium in that time.

De Bruyne's agent claimed: “Should Kevin be granted a transfer, I will immediately be on the phone to Michael Reschke, Bayer 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 clubs offer the best future for him on a sporting level.”
