Belgium head coach Marc Wilmots believes Chelsea's Kevin De Bruyne should seek regular first-team football away from Stamford Bridge.

STRIKING OUT

Cavani is just one of the strikers linked with a move to Arsenal in this week's Rumor Mill.

De Bruyne has failed to cement a place in Jose Mourinho's starting XI, making just three appearances for the Blues.

Wilmots believes the 22-year-old Belgium attacking midfielder's progress will stagnate on the bench, and he should consider a move away if he cannot establish a first-team spot at the club.

"My request is that Kevin De Bruyne plays regular first-team football," Wilmots told Sport-BILD.

"Everyone knows what he is capable of."

Bundesliga side Schalke 04 are rumoured to be interested in De Bruyne and Wilmots believes a switch to Gelsenkirchen would be a smart move.

"Schalke is a special club for me and it would be great to see a player of this quality play for Schalke 04."

The German side's general manager Horst Heldt has refused to rule out a move for the midfielder, who spent last season on loan at rivals Werder Bremen.

"Kevin De Bruyne is a player that many clubs are about to consider," he said.
