Everton are reportedly looking to bring Chelsea winger Eden Hazard’s brother Thorgan to Goodison Park as part of a loan deal this summer.

The younger Hazard has spent the last two seasons back in his homeland with Zulte Waredem where he has put in several brilliant performances. The 21-year-old has also earned the Belgian Pro League Player of the Year award for his performances and now wants to test his skills in the Premier League.

A loan move would be best for Thorgan as he is unlikely to be in the Chelsea’s first team anytime soon due to the glut of talent in his position at Stamford Bridge. The Merseyside club see Thorgan as a potential replacement for on-loan Barcelona forward Gerard Deulofeu who is unlikely to stay with the Toffees for another season.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez is convinced that Hazard will be a success at Goodison Park after the youngster netted 15 goals in 48 appearances this season.

Whether Hazard can replicate his brilliant performances in the Premier League remains to be seen.
