Chelsea have been given hope in their pursuit of Belgian starlet Kevin De Bruyne.

The 20-year-old impressed on his first competitive trip to Stamford Bridge last night, one of the few shining lights for the visitors in a 5-0 Champions League thrashing.

Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas will get to take another close look at the player in a fortnight, when Chelsea travel away to Genk for the return fixture in Group E, and manager Mario Been knows it might not be long until the player leaves permanently for the English capital.

"I know that Kevin is a really great player and that Chelsea already talked about him," said Been prior to last night's clash.

"Chelsea look and want to buy all the big talents so, for me, it wouldn't be a surprise if Kevin went to Chelsea. Everyone's got his price."


Reports in The Daily Mail claimed Chelsea would only need in the region of £6 million to secure the attacking midfielder's signature, although that figure is likely to increase with more impressive displays in Europe.
