Racing Genk youngster De Bruyne could be used in Chelsea's Lukaku deal

Chelsea may use young midfielder Kevin De Bruyne in a deal to get Anderlecht's Romelu Lukaku across the line.

The RacingGenk teenager could join the Blues and then get loaned back to Belgium, joining Anderlecht to continue his development.

Anderlecht general manager Herman van Holsback says he has been in discussions with Chelsea regarding Lukaku and De Bruyne added fuel to the speculation that he could be used in the transfer.

"I have had time to think about my future and I would love to join Chelsea, but the important thing next season is that I play," he said.

"With Chelsea, there is not that guarantee, but there would be at Anderlecht and they would be an ideal springboard for me.

"I know Genk are in the Champions League but they must get through two rounds anyway, and if I can improve sporting wise and obviously financially, then I hope Genk will not put any obstacles in my way."
