Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas says that Genk midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has a big future ahead of him.

The 20-year-old was heavily linked with a move to The Blues this summer, but a move failed to be completed.

However, with De Bruyne set to line-up against Chelsea in the Champions League on Wednesday, Villas-Boas expects the player to do big things.


"De Bruyne has always been an interesting player," he said. "He can play in various different positions, from wide left or a 4-4-2.

"He's exceptionally gifted technically and reminds me of the old technical players like Enzo Scifo. His next step if he's thinking about it will be the most difficult one. It doesn't mean all of them we scout will join us. Hopefully, he can continue."

Chelsea were able to sign one Belgian star of the future in Romelu Lukaku and will get a taster to to De Bruyne's talent this week.

The club are keen to recruit young players into their squad, with Oluwaseyi Ojo and Lucas Ocampos both linked with a move to Chelsea in recent days.
