Thorgan Hazard, brother of Chelsea’s Eden, has emerged as a reported target for Atletico Madrid

The 25-year-old winger has been at Borussia Monchengladbach for the past four years and has inserted himself as a key member of the squad.

In fact, Hazard’s eight goals and five assists in 12 Bundesliga games this season have helped Gladbach move up to second in the standings.

The Belgium international has frequently been tipped to follow in his older brother’s footsteps by joining a big European club.

Gotze was intimidated by Klopp when they met for the first time

Mario Gotze and Jurgen Klopp met for the first time at Borussia Dortmund, and the German midfielder explains how this was.

Now Marca reports that Atletico are eyeing up a move for Hazard with his future at Gladbach in doubt.

Hazard’s current contract at the German side expires in June 2020 and he’s yet to accept an extension from Gladbach.

And an offer from Atletico may be appealing to Hazard as it could bring about a family reunion at the Spanish capital with his brother, Eden, strongly linked with a switch to Real Madrid.

Gladbach will face RB Leipzig away in the Bundesliga on Sunday.
