Could there be Two Hazards Next Season?

Could there be Two Hazards Next Season?

The reason I ask is that I`ve stumbled across a couple of news sources that report that Jose Mourinho has visited Belgium on a spying mission.

The reason for his apparent mission has been to spy on the younger brother of Eden Hazard, Thorgen.

Signed by Chelsea last summer, 21 year-old Thorgen was sent to the Belgian club, Zulte Waregem, to get regular first team football and also demonstrate what he can do.

Thorgen has done that in some style and has been so impressive that the thought might be there that he could be a valuable asset to the first team squad next season, rather than being farmed out again to further aid his development.

As usual, we`ll endeavour to keep you informed!

any where he plays firmino is not better than him hope to see him playing for chelsea soon
16/05/2014 08:19:00
Well it will be tough to fit him in. It could be interesting though!!
16/05/2014 08:37:00
I think this guy should be competing with Oscar for his position. That should keep them both firing on all cylinders.
16/05/2014 09:28:00
if he is good enough, we should stick him in the team. the fact that he would be playing beside his brother can only improve him. However if it is decided that he goes on loan, then Everton would be the best place for him since he would be replacing the departing Deufoleu and also because it might help us in getting Barkley which is a must for the no 10 role next season. the fact that Martinez is a good coach equally adept at developing attackers should also be considered. As far as i am concerned, we should not loan another player to Liverpool again.. Ever. They are arrogant and disrespectful group including their coach who is such a bad loser.

is He as defensively aware as Oscar or a replica of His Elder Brother wen it comes to defensive awareness?? This is Mourinho we're talking about here o
16/05/2014 09:45:00
good point Ikdaniels.. with Mourinho, a player's defensive qualities is as important as his attacking ethos
16/05/2014 09:46:00
Its too early for that, he should go to the BundesLiga on loan for a season first before coming to the Epl.

If Barkley was a Chelsea player,you'd all be sending him out on loan. Thorgan is same,if not better,than Januzaj. But United and the great SAF gave him a chance and he took it. He's now taken Thorgan's place for the WC. Can we ever do that? Give the kid a chance. Lukaku,Bamford,Piazon,Thorgan,Baker,Christensen,Atsu,RLC,Ake have the potential. Sterling,Barkley,Januzaj,Stones,Bentaleb aren't better than our boys. If the tables had turned,we would have been loaning Sterling and clamouring for Atsu. We should see atleast 5 youngsters( preferably 3 of our loan players and 2 academy players) in the first team next season. Take the risk,Mou. #KTBFFH.

Send him out on loan. United with Januzaj, Welbeck, Jones, Cleverly and Smalling as a core party of the team ended 7th; didn't make the UCL nor Europa league. Chelsea is not winning major trophies with big brother Eden, tankless of Thorgan.
16/05/2014 11:13:00
Ross Barkley as Chelsea's number 10? God forbid. An oscar that had a horrible 2nd half season scored 8 goals compared to barkley's 6 goals........
16/05/2014 11:17:00
Bring him in I say
16/05/2014 11:23:00
well you gotta love Vital Chelsea, don't you? LOL. Ahem KAKU, it's all good and dandy tallking frankly and stuff... but as per this article and your comment, is Thorgan coming here to form our "core" or to add to our core made up of the most miserly defense and "third-best attack" in the country, which incidentally recently bested the likes of champions City and Liverpooo home and away, and finished its season with a UCL semifinal berth - one round better than Barcelona? Hmmm....

Send him on loan to EPL team or Bundesliga...Better gauge him in better league also.
16/05/2014 13:14:00
Mou and his assistant had checked him out. I will leave it to them to make the judgement. He looks a good player though.
16/05/2014 14:56:00
Thorgan was Belgian Footballer of the Year but the Belgian league is clearly not one of the best leagues. He will get a chance in pre-season but it would probably best that he has a season in England at an Everton, Southampton or West Ham to see if he can make the grade in England.
16/05/2014 15:46:00
If Chelsea want to win the league we need experienced players. We failed to win the league this year, partly because of our forwards but also because players like Hazard and Oscar went off the boil at the end when we needed them to step up. Now next season they will be another year more experienced and Oscar will have no World Cup to occupy his mind so hopefully we can get the new No.9 and win the title. But filling the team with youth players and kids from Belgium is incredibly risky when you are competing with Man City and I expect a rejuvenated Arsenal assuming the break their 9 year hoodoo on Saturday.
16/05/2014 15:55:00
Give him a chance if he deserves it... Is Salah better than him? All I know is we need to integrate one or two of the young talents we have...
16/05/2014 15:58:00
Cobham, you can take it to the bank that I respect opinions and appreciate your football knowledge as can be inferred from some of your comments, but mate we didn't fail to win (and we won't fail to win) the league because we will be "filling the team with youth players and kids from Belgium". Rather my over two decades experience as an ardent football follower tells me that CHELSEA FAILED TO WIN THE LEAGUE BECAUSE WE LACK A 20-GOAL-A-SEASON STRIKER. PERIOD! Believe me when I say, no team has ever won nor will win the Barclays Premier League without its topscorers being amongst the top 3-4 highest goalscorers in the league(although those who remember will tell I did an article on that anyway, it is worth a mention here nonetheless)! Your check on that is to transpose Suarez and Sturridge, never mind champions, Dzeko and Negredo with Torres and Eto'o into the Chelsea team and see what you get; I hope that disabuses your mind from what you read on the tabloids and all those skewed punditry about "Mourinho's negative tactics blah blah blah". As a scientific mind, my brain tells me that Thorgan Hazard is quality and can only ADD quality to our first team, after all he isn't the only gifted footballer in the Belgian League yet achieved the rare feat of winning their POTY with a team that isn't champion! Same token goes for the Lucas Piazons and the Christian Atsus though! BTW, by "filling the team with youth players and kids from Belgium" I hope you're not perchance against the brilliant idea of recalling both Lukaku and Courtois too, 'cause that'll be just otiose to our cause and a huge fail and betrayal of your apparent football knowledge and superior judgment. Cheers man. QED

another talent will get waste under point on how good your loan season is no point in winning u-21 pl cup...there is no way chelsea young star will get chance here...we have superior talent but the problem is we dont know how to use them...
