Eden Hazard To Fullfil ‘Dream Of Playing For Arsenal’? Or Will A Rival Scupper Move?

By on November 4, 2011

Eden Hazard will be leaving his current club, Lille at the end of this season, and it is a decision which has been supported by his former team mate and now Arsenal striker, Gervinho.

The Ivorian forward signed for Arsenal from Lille for £10.7 million during the summer, and he believes that Hazard has all of the qualities to succeed at a bigger club:

“He’s a young player with tremendous qualities. If he thinks it is time to leave, he must have thought it through.”

“He has the qualities to succeed abroad. All the major players want to break through to the top level. He has learned a lot from Lille, he will grow a lot abroad.”

The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is a known admirer of Hazard’s, having monitored his progress for a number of years, and many Arsenal fans will be hoping Gervinho and the Belgian attacking midfielder can be reunited at the Emirates. Wenger has said previously: “We are following him (Hazard). Personally I think he has real talent and the level needed to play at Arsenal”

As unlikely as it is that Wenger will spend the required amount Lille will demand for their highly sought after 20 year-old, thought to be at least £35m, Arsenal can cling onto the hope that Hazard will follow his childhood dream and sign for the London club. The Belgian, who has scored 33 goals and assisted 27 in 158 Lille appearances said last year:

“If one day I leave Lille, I will go to Real or Arsenal. Real Madrid and Arsenal are the clubs I dreamed of joining as a child.”

However, Hazard will have quite a few more option than just Real or Arsenal to choose from.  Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham are all thought to be interested in the Belgian, as well as italian giants Inter Milan.

        Hahaha, your both so funny! why on earth would he leave Lille, who he just won the league with and is now playing Champions league football with and move to a team outside of the CL and struggling in the europa league. Spurs are the club players go to when A) they don’t know any better or B) they’re scraping the barrel of their careers- not when they want to win something.

    I’m a Spurs fan… So I am not trying to be biased, but Liverpool? Seriously!? He would be better off at the red part of North London then Liverpool. Just because you Spend £20mil on the likes of Downy and Henderson, does not make you a big enough club for the likes of this tallent. You had your decade. RIP.

    dats true in real he will only play 18 out of 38 games and most of dem as subs, but in arsenal he will definitely bench ramsey or wallcot dats 4 sure he’l be a starter.

      he will for sure bench WALLCOT since he is fast and has control unlike WALLCOT. WALLCOT needs to learn how to control the ball like messi or cr7. with that he can be very much higher than messi.
