Eden Hazard is looking forward to the prospect of playing in the same side as his brother Thorgan at Chelsea in seasons to come.

The Belgium international sealed a move to Stamford Bridge from Lille this summer after months of speculation linking him with a transfer to west London, before his 19-year-old brother was also snapped up by the Blues from Lens.

Eden, 21, was quick to play down comparisons between their styles of play but admitted he is keen to link up with his brother at both club and international level.

“My brother is not the same as me because he is not someone who dribbles a lot,” Eden told Chelsea’s website.

“He is more someone who has a passing game in midfield. He can play on the wings also but his best position is in central midfield, a number 10.

“Despite both of us having been at Tubize, we have never played in the same team, so I hope I can play soon alongside my brother in the national team and also for Chelsea.”

Eden also pointed out that his two other younger brothers – Kylian, 16, and seven-year-old Ethan – could be set to shine on the big stage in years to come.

He continued: “Given the family background, the chance of two sons becoming professionals must have increased but in fact there are two more Hazards who could potentially take the same career path – Kylian and Ethan.

“One plays in the youth team at Lille and the other plays in Belgium, but he is still very young, he is enjoying football for the first time so we shall see.”
