Thorgan Hazard has alerted Premier League clubs of his summer availability by admitting he would be interested in a move to England.

Reports in Germany suggest that Leicester City have earmarked Thorgan, the younger brother of Chelsea star Eden, as the successor to Riyad Mahrez.

The 24-year-old has scored eight goals for Borussia Monchengladbach this season, and is reportedly valued by the Bundesliga side at €30m.

He told Belgian outlet Sport Magazine: “England is appealing, but when you speak to players who play there, they also tell you that Germany seems like a great league. We have the best stadiums, the best infrastructures. The atmosphere is also ‘hotter’ than in England.

 I listen to what is being said about me, but it’s not something I bother myself with. My father deals with off the pitch stuff.

“Apparently, a few clubs are interested, but we’ll analyse all that at the end of the season.”
