Kevin De Bruyne could be on his way out of Chelsea if reports are to be believed. His Belgian team-mate and Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard also has thrown in the hint that De Bruyne could be a transfer target this January .
Eden Hazard speaking to a local Belgian news channel shared his views on De Bruyne saying that if he wants to be part of the 2014 World Cup and be part of the Belgium national side he would be better off leaving the club and look for first team football. Although Hazard didn't specify whether he was referring to a loan move or a permanent transfer.
De Bruyne who had joined Chelsea from FC Genk back in January 2012 has spent the last season on loan with German Bundesliga side Werder Bremen, where he had a good season scoring ten goals and his performance was acknowledged by Jose Mourinho which saw De Bruyne start first two of the three games against Hull City and Manchester United. But later he could only be seen in the reserve team.
Host of clubs have already showed in interest in signing De Bruyne when the transfer market opens up in January. De Bruyne looking for first team football is on the wishlist of three English Premier clubs, one of them being Southampton and other two being Manchester United and Liverpool but later two wont be able to guarantee first team football whereas Southampton could be a good choice. Southampton are playing good attractive football and could well enjoy the services of Chelsea's versatile midfielder. De Bruyne would also benefit from the style of football which Southampton have exhibited so far where midfielders play a crucial part in the success that they have endured till now.
Athletico Madrid and RS Anderlecht are the other two clubs out of the EPL who are keen to have the Belgium international on board. Atletico boss Diego Simeone is desperate to seek a replacement for Koke who could well be out in the January transfer window. Anderlecht Manger Herman van Holsbeeck also has lots of praises for the young Belgian's talent and looks to offer De Bruyne a chance to play first team football and help him secure a place in the Belgian national side come World Cup in Brazil next year.
