Werder Bremen have revealed that they are keen to extend Kevin De Bruyne’s loan deal from Chelsea.
The Belgian winger is yet to make a Premier League appearance for the Blues, despite signing at Stamford Bridge over a year ago.
Upon penning a contract with the west Londoners, the 21-year-old was immediately loaned back to Genk, before returning to Chelsea last summer.
However, with a wealth of players vying for a place in his favoured attacking midfield position, De Bruyne was granted another loan move, with the club’s hierarchy keen to keep him developing.
Werder are hopeful that they can keen hold of the youngster, and see the competition for a starting berth at Chelsea as a positive:
“We have made no secret of our interest in keeping Kevin.” The club’s sporting director Thomas Eichin is quoted by Sky Sports.
“We are the right club to advance his development.”
Should De Bruyne return to Chelsea he will be in direct competition with the likes of Juan Mata, Eden Hazard and Oscar as well as Victor Moses and Marko Marin for a spot in the starting XI.
He would struggle to dislodge the first-choice trio, who have performed well for the club both domestically and in Europe.
