Eden Hazard eyes brother link-up

Eden Hazard is looking forward to playing alongside brother Thorgan at Chelsea, following his sibling's arrival at Stamford Bridge earlier this month.

Eden, 21, joined Chelsea for €40 million from Lille in May and has quickly been joined by his brother, who arrives at Chelsea for an undisclosed fee from Lens.

Belgium international Eden is looking forward to partnering Thorgan in the Chelsea midfielder, with the pair yet to appear together in their career.

"My brother is not the same as me because he is not someone who dribbles a lot," Hazard told Chelsea's official website.

"He is more someone who has a passing game in midfield. He can play on the wings also but his best position is in central midfield, a number 10.

"Despite both of us having been at Tubize, we have never played in the same team, so I hope I can play soon alongside my brother in the national team and also for Chelsea."

The Hazard family's footballing connections are not limited to just Eden and Thorgan, with their father having coached and younger brothers Kylian and Ethan already well on their way to a career in football.

"I had my father as a coach for one year and he also followed me after that but not as a coach, more as a fan," Eden added. "It was really after the game that he was talking, saying what was good about my game and what wasn't.

"One [brother] plays in the youth team at Lille and the other plays in Belgium, but he is still very young, he is enjoying football for the first time so we shall see."
