Werder Bremen would be keen on bringing Kevin De Bruyne back to the Bundesliga should he find himself unhappy at Chelsea.

The Belgium international has fallen out of favour under Jose Mourinho in recent games and failed to even make the bench for Saturday’s clash at Tottenham and Tuesday’s win over Steaua Bucharest.

And Bremen general manager Thomas Eichin says he would welcome the chance to re-sign the 22-year-old, who spent a loan spell at the Bundesliga club last season.

“Should Kevin be unhappy, we are an eager first contact,” Sky Sports News quotes Eichin as saying.

“I’m in contact with his agent and I’m informed about Kevin’s situation at Chelsea.

“I know Kevin – if he doesn’t play, it is certainly a big problem for him. Let’s wait and see what happens in the winter. We will be ready if there’s a possibility to get him.”

De Bruyne has started just two Premier League games under new Blues boss Mourinho, who has criticised the midfielder’s displays in recent matches.

“He is not selected because I did not like the way he played against Swindon and I did not like the way he was training,” Mourinho said before Tuesday’s 4-0 victory in Romania.
