Dortmund eye Hazard following Pulisic sale

BERLIN (AFP) – Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund are reportedly looking to invest the GBP58 million made from selling US international Christian Pulisic to Chelsea on both Belgium winger Thorgan Hazard and Argentine defender Leonardo Balerdi.

Chelsea signed the 20-year-old Pulisic on a five-and-a-half year contract for next season and he will join the Blues in the summer.

Hazard, younger brother of Chelsea attacker Eden, is on Dortmund’s radar as German media widely reports that the 25-year-old has so far rejected an extension to his current Borussia Moenchengladbach contract, which expires in 2020.

“At the moment, I can’t say much about other clubs, because I have spoken with (club) manager Max Eberl about focusing completely on Gladbach in the second half of the season,” said Hazard.
