Chelsea have made a £5 million bid for Belgian starlet Kevin de Bruyne, according to reports.

The 20-year-old midfielder has been heavily linked with the Blues throughout the transfer window, with Andre Villas-Boas keen to continue investing in youth this summer.

Reports in The Daily Telegraph claim the Portuguese manager has returned to Genk, the club Chelsea signed Thibaut Courtois from earlier in the summer, in an effort to secure the services of De Bruyne.

Having already secured the services of Belgian prodigy Romelu Lukaku from Anderlecht, the Blues are now reported to have stepped-up their interest in his compatriot on deadline day.


It's claimed Chelsea have been in negotiations with the club throughout the summer, and are willing to loan the player back to the Cristal Arena.

However, in an effort to make sure De Bruyne doesn't slip through their fingers, Chelsea hope to sanction a deal by the end of deadline day bringing the player to Stamford Bridge before 11pm.
