Premier League champions Leicester City have made Borussia M’gladbach midfielder Thorgan Hazard their number one target, according to Het Laatste Nieuws.
The Foxes are expected to reinforce the squad this summer and the former Chelsea starlet is reportedly the first name on their hit-list.
Following a successful loan spell, Hazard joined die Fohlen in an €8 million deal last summer, and he has continued with impressive performances in German Bundesliga.
The 23-year-old has managed 3 goals and 5 assists in 27 league outings this season and he is on the verge of nailing down a regular starting berth.
Usually deployed as an attacking midfielder, but also capable of playing on either flank, Hazard is seen as a useful addition to the Leicester City squad, and the Foxes are expected to step up their interest in his services in the coming weeks.
The talented midfielder had joined Chelsea from Lens in July 2012, but he never made a single appearance for the Blues.
