Former Werder Bremen sporting director Klaus Allofs is keen for his new club Wolfsburg to snap up Kevin De Bruyne for next season, according to Belgian broadcaster RTBF.
Allofs recently ended a 13-year association with Werder Bremen, moving to Wolfsburg to take up the same post of sporting director he held at the Weserstadion.
The German deal-maker pulled off many coups for Werder Bremen during his time at the club and last summer was no different, when he tempted talented Belgian midfielder De Bruyne to Germany on a season-long loan from Chelsea.
De Bruyne wasted no time in making a splash at Werder Bremen, leaving Allofs enchanted by his skilky skills and declaring "he has everything".
Allofs also revealed that he had tracked De Bruyne for years, but could not ultimately compete when Chelsea approached Genk to sign the midfielder.
However, now Allofs is hoping to rekindle his love affair with the Belgian by taking him to the Volkswagen Arena for next season.
De Bruyne has already given Chelsea notice that he does not want to return to Stamford Bridge next season to sit on the bench and another loan, this time to Wolfsburg, could fit the bill for the player.
Allofs will also be alive to any possibility of making the move a permanent one.
It remains to be seen how Chelsea might react, but competition for a starting spot at Stamford Bridge looks fierce and is unlikely to be any easier next summer.
