Reports from Germany have it that Leicester City are on the look out to replace their disgruntled forward, Riyad Mahrez, with Eden Hazard’s brother Thorgan Hazard.

Recall that Mahrez, while seeking to move to Manchester City, had last month handed in a request to do.

Leicester, however, stood in the way with a firm resolve that the player will not leave for less than around £90 million.

The Algerian has since missed training to show his anger at why he was not allowed to move on, and the report claims that Foxes bosses are now focused on finding a replacement for their star man.

And Bild claims that Borussia Monchengladbach attacker Thorgan Hazard is high on their list, although Chelsea had first refused the player.

The 24-year-old actually moved to Stamford Bridge in 2012 but after being loan out a couple of times he eventually completed a permanent switch in 2015.

Last month, Hazard had hinted at the possibility of changing team. Recall that he had said that, “The Bundesliga is a good championship and for now, I want to stay here.

“In the future maybe I will be in England again. I hope I can end my career in Belgium but at the moment I don’t think about the end of my career.”
