Reports in France are suggesting that Arsenal have reached an agreement with Eden Hazard‘s representatives over a transfer to the Emirates.
According to respected French media outlet Mercato 365′s, Arsenal had a 30 million euro bid rejected, are now set to launch a 35 million euro bid which should be enough to secure the Player of the Season last year. Eden is keen to join his ex-teammate Gervinho in North London, and with Arsenal’s place secured in the Champions League group stage it seems he is set to complete his transfer after agreeing terms on the move.
The report read:
“As we made it clear it to you previously, Arsenal has just formulated a proposal of thirty million euros for Belgian international attacker Eden Hazard (20), whose contract expires in June 2015, but without success. A new offer of thirty-five million euros is set to be made.
According to our information, the Lille player has already made an agreement with the Gunners over a future transfer. Concern is very much on the side of the club of president Michel Seydoux.”
Whilst spending a big bulk of his budget on the 20 year old may be a risk, Arsene knows about attacking talent and Eden can be playing for Arsenal for years to come. Hopefully the news which has broken from Mercato 365 – one of France’s most prestigious sports websites – turns out to be true.
The news comes as a surprise after Lille’s president has repeatedly dismissed stories of Eden’s departure, most recently saying:
“Eden will not be leaving this season,” said Paquet. “We are aware of interest from some of the biggest clubs in Europe but we are not prepared to sell.”
Whether Hazard will end up at Arsenal this summer is not certain, but if the stories are to believed, we have made a big step forward to securing his signature before next weeks deadline.
