Hazard hopes Blues brother can be Chelsea hit

Eden Hazard has extolled the virtues of brother Thorgan, after Chelsea completed the signing of the younger Hazard from Lens last week.

The former left French football for life in London only at the start of July after choosing Chelsea over Manchester City and Manchester United, and the Blues were quick to follow up the signing of the Belgian with the capture of his sibling.

Thorgan is far less established than Eden, and moves to Stamford Bridge having yet to forge a reputation in European football after just 14 appearances in the second tier of French league system.

Eden, though, believes Chelsea have a bright young prospect on their hands, even if the 19-year-old does not quite compare in style to himself.

"My brother is not the same as me because he is not someone who dribbles a lot," Hazard told the official Chelsea website.

"He is more someone who has a passing game in midfield. He can play on the wings also but his best position is in central midfield, a number 10.

"Despite both of us having been at [Belgian club] Tubize, we have never played in the same team, so I hope I can play soon alongside my brother in the national team and also for Chelsea."

Thorgan is unlikely to be the final arrival of a busy summer of transfer activity for Chelsea, during which they have spent over £60 million on new acquisitions.

The Hazard brothers are just two of four high-profile recruits, and Roberto di Matteo is also reportedly keen on Edinson Cavani and Hulk.
