Liverpool & Schalke chase Thorgan Hazard after Chelsea confirm he’s not a 1st team squad player []

Belgium daily Het Laatste Nieuws report on Friday that Chelsea’s Thorgan Hazard is being tracked by Liverpool and Schalke after the Blues have made it clear that Eden’s younger brother will not be included in the Pensioner’s first team squad next season.

Leaving aside the merits of Chelsea’s decision over the player who just won the player of the season award in the Jupiler League, Het Laatste Nieuws now report that Thorgan is available either on loan or for sale.

Liverpool are said to be very keen on Thorgan, and the Reds are said to have sent scouts to watch the Chelsea loanee play for current club Zulte-Waregem against Lokeren last weekend.

Schalke are also known to have sent scouts too.

For the record, Jose Mourinho ran his personal eye over  Thorgan Hazard on Thursday night, when the Special One watched on as Zulte-Waregem lost 2-1 to Anderlecht.
