Chelsea want to give Thorgan Hazard the opportunity to test himself in the Premier League next season, according to The Daily Mirror.
The British newspaper report that the Belgian starlet has earned high praise for his displays on loan in the Belgian Pro League with Zulte Waregem and now the Blues want to bring him back before loaning him to a fellow English top-flight club.
20-year-old Hazard - younger brother of Chelsea star Eden - joined Chelsea from French outfit Lens during the summer of 2012 but is yet to make a first-team appearance at Stamford Bridge.
The versatile midfielder - who has already earned one senior international cap for his country under Marc Wilmots - was loaned to Zulte in August. Obviously suitably impressed with his form back in his homeland, the club agreed another deal to bring him back to Regenboogstadion for a second stint.
It has been a rather successful season for the Hazard brothers, with Eden playing a starring role for Chelsea under the guidance of Jose Mourinho.
The 23-year-old playmaker, who has been at Stamford Bridge himself since 2012, has notched 12 goals and produced five assists in 25 Premier League games so far this season.
His superb form was elevated to another level on Saturday, with Hazard scoring a terrific hat-trick in Chelsea's 3-0 thrashing of Alan Pardew's Newcastle.
One can only imagine what it will be like to see two of them terrorising Premier League defences. However, it appears Hazard the younger will have to prove his talent elsewhere in the top-flight first.
