Borussia Monchengladbach winger Thorgan Hazard has stressed that he is not looking to leave the club at present amid reported interest from several Premier League clubs.

The 25-year-old younger brother of Chelsea ace Eden Hazard, Thorgan has been steadily making his own name for himself over the past few seasons and boasts an impressive 12 goals and seven assists from 19 club games in all competitions (Transfermarkt).

 

According to a report in the Bleacher Report, Thorgan was rumoured to be keen on joining Eden in the Premier League, with Tottenham Hotspur understood to be interested in a player who spent a short time in Chelsea’s academy before moving to Germany.

Meanwhile, Foot Mercato suggested that Everton have also been keeping an eye on the 19-time capped Belgium international, but in an interview with the official Monchengladbach site, his comments suggested a desire to stay put at his current club.

"I am not thinking about a transfer or a new deal right now," said Hazard. "I cannot say what will happen after the end of this season. I may possibly extend my contract as I’m very happy here and family are also settled. Max and I will speak about this when it is the right time."

Some fans of clubs linked with Hazard could potentially take solace from the apparent vagueness of what the future holds for the £34m-rated ace (Transfermarkt) at the end of the season, implying there could be a chance of a switch to Tottenham, Everton, or another team altogether.
