His form has not gone unnoticed by Mourinho who is keen to sign him as Iker Casillis' understudy, according to the Daily Mirror.
Courtois, who made his debut for his country last November, said last month that he expects to be loaned out again next season.
'I think I will have to play for another English team for a year or two before I join Chelsea,' he admitted.
