Reports from Belgium have claimed that reported Chelsea target Leandro Trossard and Eden Hazard don’t talk to each other.

According to RTL Sport, the pair are not on good terms as part of the Belgium camp that are currently competing at the World Cup in Qatar.

Despite still being at the end of their ‘golden generation’, it has so far not been a memorable tournament for the 2018 bronze medallists.

They scraped past an impressive Canada side in the opening match thanks to a strike from former Chelsea man Michy Batshuayi.

However, they were humbled 2-0 by a Hakim Ziyech-led Morocco side leaving them in a precarious position to even qualify from the group stages.

They will need to win against an in-form Croatia side in the final group match to qualify for the knockout stages.

Trossard and Hazard don’t speak

Things are likely not being made easier by disputes in-house that are being reported from the media.

RTL Sport have claimed that things came to a head in a crisis meeting, after Trossard and Hazard’s refusal to speak to each other has become just one of a number of issues in the camp.

Ever since Graham Potter joined Chelsea, there have been reports claiming that he would love to bring the Brighton man with him to Stamford Bridge.

With the player himself refusing to rule out the possibility of a transfer in the future windows, the deal is certainly looking a possibility.

Potter has certainly not enjoyed the best start to life as the Blues boss, and adding a player he has plenty of experience utilising will no doubt be a great boost for him.

With him seemingly sticking by looking to convert a winger into a wing-back, a player the experiment has already worked on in Trossard would be a welcome addition at Chelsea.
