Wolfsburg Director of Sport Klaus Allofs has claimed that the Bundesliga club are moving closer to completing a deal to sign Chelsea attacking midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, writes the Independent

Kevin de Bruyne

De Bruyne began Chelsea’s opening game of the season against Hull City, but has fallen completely out of favour under Jose Mourinho in recent months, and has not appeared in the Premier League since coming off the bench in the latter stages of the 2-0 win over Fulham on September 21.

Wolfsburg have made no secret of their desire to sign the 22-year-old Belgian, but they would prefer to acquire him on a permanent basis, while Chelsea are hoping for a loan deal.

Speaking to German newspaper Wolfsburger Nachrichten, Allofs was still confident of pulling off the transfer on Wolfsburg’s preferred terms. He said: ‘It’s not that we can confirm the deal just yet, but we are no longer so far apart with Chelsea that we can’t bridge the differences.’

De Bruyne has been a Chelsea player since January 2012, when he was signed by then manager Andre Villas-Boas, but this is his first season of playing in Blues’ first-team, having been sent back on loan to previous club Genk upon arrival, before spending the whole of last season at Wolfsburg’s rivals, Werder Bremen.
