Eden Hazard's younger brother Thorgan has once again been declared the best player playing in Belgium after impressing for Zulte Waregem.

There is a very strong possibility that Chelsea will have a Hazard on either flank next season, after Eden Hazard's younger brother Thorgan capped off a superb loan season in Belgium with the Player of the Year award.

The younger Hazard, who has been on loan at Zulte Waregem since 2012, had already won the country's other major domestic player award, the Belgian Golden shoe, for a season that has seen him score an excellent 16 goals in 50 games.

Thorgan Hazard had a particularly outstanding end to the season, netting 5 times in 9 Belgian Pro League playoff games, a series of matches between the top 6 teams in Belgium that designates the winner of the league.

That form has left him in the standby group of Belgium's World Cup squad, though Hazard is relying on another player dropping out in order to join up with his brother in Brazil.

It has also left the 21-year-old one of the most sought after youngsters in Europe, much like Eden was a couple of years ago, with Merseyside rivals Liverpool and Everton rumoured to be eager on signing the player. The Blues may only be willing to let the player go out on loan if they do decide to let him move to a Premier League rival.

Hazard has one more game remaining of the Pro League playoff, before his spell at Zulte comes to an end. Whether he ends up at Stamford Bridge next season, or somewhere else remains to be seen.
