The 21-year-old midfielder - the younger brother of Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard - has spent the last two seasons on loan in his native Belgium with Zulte-Waregem.
He is, however, tied to a contract at Stamford Bridge and will return to England in the summer.
With Chelsea currently well-stocked for creative talent, Hazard appreciates that his short-term future is likely to involve further loan spells.
He will be looking to take a step up in class in 2014/15, though, and hopes to find a club in the English or German top flight ready to offer him a grander stage on which to perform.
Hazard told RTBF: "At the end of the season, I'll return to Chelsea. Then we will discuss our options.
"But next season I would like to play in the Premier League or in the Bundesliga.
"Chelsea will decide, but I won't stay in Belgium."
