Chelsea may have boosted their hopes of getting Eden Hazard to sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge by bringing his younger brother Kylian to the club this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that Chelsea’s next big task is convincing Hazard to commit his future to the west London club by signing a new contract with the Premier League champions.

Chelsea completed the signing of Eden’s younger brother Kylian from Hungarian club Ujpest last week, with the 22-year-old set to go into the Blues’ development squad.

Although Kylian is not expected to make an impact in the first team at Stamford Bridge, the same report in the Telegraph claims that the move could work in their favour as they look to try to convince Eden to stay at the club.

Hazard has long been linked with a move away from Chelsea after earning a reputation as one of the Premier League’s top attacking players since his transfer from Lille back in 2012.

The Belgium international has been touted as a possible target for Real Madrid in recent years but a move to the Bernabeu has not yet materialised.

Hazard could be in line to make his first Premier League appearance of the season against Leicester next weekend after missing the start of the campaign due to an ankle injury.
