Liverpool are considering an approach in signing Chelsea midfielder Thorgan Hazard in the summer transfer window, according to the Metro.

The Blues signed the 21-year-old from Lens in 2012 after completing the acquisition of his brother, Eden Hazard. Thorgan spent the last two seasons on loan at the Belgium club Zulte Waregem.

The Belgium international has been in brilliant form for Waregem and his impressive form has seen him being named the Player of the Season in Belgium Pro League. He will return to Stamford Bridge after completing his two-year loan spell with Waregem.

The report claims Thorgan is unlikely to be included in Jose Mourinho's plan after having an impressive spell in his native. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has already opened talks with the west London club in order to sign the Belgium midfielder.

The Merseyside club are looking to step up the process to bring Thorgan to Anfield and make a £6m bid for his signature. The Reds will face tough competition in landing the Blues midfielder in the coming transfer market.

Liverpool are aware the midfielder is attracting interest from clubs across Europe. He has been a top transfer target for Premier League side Everton while German outfit Schalke are also keen on signing Chelsea man.

The midfielder's father, Thiery Hazard, has confirmed that several clubs are interested in signing the player.

"We will quietly look at the all the offers and see which one Thorgan is most comfortable with," the Metro quoted Thierry Hazard as saying.

Meanwhile, Thorgan's elder brother, Eden, believes Cesar Azpilicueta deserved to win the Chelsea Players' Player of the Year and heaped praise on the Spain international for his impressive form this season.

'He [Azpilicueta] deserved it, he's had a very good season. He didn't start the season because Ashley was playing left-back, but he's the kind of player who trains hard every day, which has helped him arrive at the top," Eden told Chelsea's official website.

"I'm happy for him because he's my friend, he speaks French with me and he's a very good guy," he concluded.
