Report: Tottenham reportedly looking at signing Thorgan Hazard

Tottenham are reportedly showing an interest in signing former Chelsea man Hazard.

According to a report in Belgian media outlet Voetbal Nieuws, Tottenham Hotspur are tracking another Belgian to add to their side - with Thorgan Hazard a transfer target for the January window.

Spurs already own four Belgian players, and if a deal for Hazard could be struck he would be the fifth Red Devils’ international in their squad, having picked up his first cap in the summer of 2013.

Hazard is currently with Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach, having signed on a permanent deal from Premier League side Chelsea in January. The permanent transfer came after the 22-year-old spent the first half of the season on loan with the German club.

The youngster was one of the better performing players in the league last term, scoring five goals and registering 10 assists in 41 games as Monchengladbach secured Champions League football.

This season has started slower for Hazard, with just one goal and one assist in eight games, although there is no doubting the talent of a player named Belgium’s Golden Shoe winner in 2014.

Signing Hazard would add further depth to Tottenham’s attacking ranks, and he is able to play anywhere across the front line, although he is naturally a winger - much like his older brother Eden Hazard of Chelsea.

He is young, and a player with a wealth of potential, and Spurs would be taking another step on their path to building a strong team for the future if they decide to make a formal move for Hazard when the January transfer window opens.
