Lille sensation Eden Hazard has recently revealed that he’ll move abroad at the end of the season, leaving the likes of Real Madrid, Arsenal, Inter Milan, Liverpool and Manchester United on red alert.

The highly-rated 20-year-old Belgian winger is contracted to the Ligue 1 club until 2015, but told French publication L’Equipe recently:
‘I feel ready to make it to the next level at a big club.’
‘I stayed in Lille this season because there were still things I had to work on, things to prove. But now, I’m ready.’

Big-spending PSG looked favourites to land the tricky forward from Lille next summer, but the youngster now looks more likely to sign for a major club abroad, with Real Madrid, Arsenal and United looking odds on favourite to acquire his signature.

Hazard added:
‘Paris is not for now. Paris is magical, as they say. Of course it attracts me, but for now, no. In France I do not want to build a rival club to Lille.’
‘After France, I want to go abroad.’

Whilst I remain hopeful that we could land Hazard next summer, purely for the fact that Arsenal is the place to be if you’re an up and coming star, for some reason I think the Belgian will favour a move to Real, as it is one of the biggest clubs in world football.

Fingers crossed that Arsene Wenger can do the business and acquire the talented winger.

    I truely believe thta Hazard is a big player and I want him to be a gooner.
    BUT, People are making too many stories about him and they are setting expectations that if they don’t happen, you would build another stories of how wenger missed out on him…
    What I want to say, is let things happen like it should and just follow the events. and don’t foregt, Arsenal are not the onlt club in the world. There are so many bigger that Arsenal and with unlimited money. so just remeber that if we don’t buy all the player you will write abou them…

    unfortunately wenger does not have too much of a say in this one, wenger could say all he likes but if Real/Barca/ManU/ make bids we cant offer him more than them, and would it be reasonable to pay so much just because other teams dont want u to have him, what exactly are you paying for? theres still no guarantee he will perform in EPL. the only way he’s coming to arsenal is if HE WANTS to come to arsenal
