Chelsea look set to offload youngster Thorgan Hazard in the January transfer window, according to the Daily Star.

The 21-year-old, who joined Borussia Monchengladbach on loan in July, now looks set to secure a permanent deal with the German club in the upcoming transfer window. 

Strong season 

Hazard - the younger brother of Chelsea superstar Eden - has in fact enjoyed a fine season with his current club so far, having impressed in the Europa League. 

And now, after failing to gain any first-team opportunities at the Premier League giants, he looks set to depart Stamford Bridge, with it being reported that the two clubs have agreed on a fee of £6.3 million for his services. 

The youngster previously starred out on loan at Belgian club Zulte, and was even voted as the best player in the league in the last campaign, however it now appears extremely unlikely that he will follow in the footsteps of his brother in England's elite division.

Eden Hazard 

Eden, meanwhile, continues to shine under Jose Mourinho at Chelsea. The Belgian international, who looks set to become one of the world's greatest players over the coming years, has played a key role in the Blues' success this term. 

In fact, as they secured a point at the St Mary's against Southampton in their last outing, it was the winger that equalised for the Blues in the 1-1 draw.

And now, with Chelsea still sitting at the top of the league table, Hazard and Co. will be gearing up for tomorrow's New Year's Day clash with London rivals Tottenham at White Hart Lane. 

There's no doubt about it, Chelsea fans will be hoping that their star man provides the spark once again as they look to secure yet another three points. One thing seems certain, however, is that Hazard will not be handed the opportunity to play with his younger brother at club level anytime soon.
