Leicester City have reportedly identified Borussia Monchengladbach’s Thorgan Hazard as a possible transfer target this summer.

Bild, as cited by the Leicester Mercury, claims that the former Chelsea player is on the Foxes’ radar.

Claude Puel’s men are in the market for a wide man with Riyad Mahrez expected to complete a move to Manchester City later in the window.

There have been some suggestions that Patrick Roberts could head in the other directions, but Leicester appear to be exploring other options.

Hazard, the younger brother of Chelsa’s Eden Hazard, has impressed for Gladbach in the Bundesliga and is also thought to be attracting interest from Valencia in Spain.

Chelsea had previously held a buy-back clause for Hazard after they sold him permanently to the German side, but that has since expired.

The Blues continue to monitor the player, who has gone on to make a name for himself in Germany and have been linked with moves to re-sign him previously.
