Chelsea starlet target Kevin de Bruyne is hoping to reengineer a move to Stamford Bridge from Racing Genk.

The 20-year-old was tipped to make a £6 million move to west London from the Cristal Arena during the summer transfer window, but the Belgian Pro League outfit held firm and held onto their prized asset.

However, the player has continuously stated his desire to play for the Blues, whose manager Andre Villas-Boas confirmed earlier in the week that Chelsea were still following the player.

The two teams met in the Champions League on Wednesday nigh, and whilst Genk were on the wrong end of a 5-0 defeat in west London, De Bruyne was the shining light for his side against the Chelsea side.

And, with speculation now rife across Europe, the one-cap international admits he would like to move to a better club if possible.

“I am not in the conversations between Genk and Chelsea but I hope it will be,” said the player.


“I always try to get to a better level. If it’s not good enough for Chelsea then maybe for a team a little lower who are maybe better than Genk.”

Villas-Boas well get another chance to take a closer look at the player in a fortnight, when Chelsea travel to Belgium for the return Group E fixture.
