There's something in the blood of those Hazard kids. 

Thorgan Hazard, the lesser-known younger brother of Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard, has emerged from big bro's shadow while on loan at Belgian club Zulte Waregem. 

In his two years at the club while on loan from Chelsea, he helped them reach European football and enjoyed his finest attacking output this season, scoring 16 times and assisting 20 more in 43 appearances. 

The Zulte Waregem supporters paid tribute to the Belgian Pro Player of the Year with a banner honouring his progress. No longer just the "other" Hazard, Thorgan has made a name for himself.

Per Paul Gorst of The Mirror, his exploits have linked him with a move to Everton, as it's unlikely he'd play first-team football at Chelsea in the immediate future.
