January priority

Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Thorgan Hazard is Chelsea’s top priority for the Janaury transfer window, according to journalist Philip Harmeling.

The 23-year-old is the younger brother of Chelsea star Eden Hazard, and was previously on Chelsea’s books from 2012 to 2015.

Following two separte loan spells away from London, Thorgan finally left the club on a permanent basis, joining Monchengladbach last year.

Buy-back clause

Although Thorgan failed to make a single appearance during his time at Chelsea, the club insisted on including a buy-back clause when he transferred to Germany.

The Belgian midfielder has 4 goals and 2 assists in his 10 appearances so far this season.
