Lille are reportedly eyeing a loan move for Kevin De Bruyne.

Lille are reportedly chasing Chelsea winger Kevin De Bruyne as a possible short-term replacement for Eden Hazard.

The 20-year-old only joined the Blues from Genk in January, but was loaned back as a way of giving him more first-team experience.

The West London club are now said to be toying with the idea of loaning the £8m youngster out again next season.

According to Belgian newspaper La DH, Les Dogues boss Rudi Garcia sees De Bruyne as an ideal stand-in for his Belgian international teammate, who is expected to complete a big-money move this summer.

Atletico Madrid, Sporting Lisbon and Benfica are also said to be monitoring the situation.
