Arsenal face competition for Hazard

Lille's midfielder Eden Hazard, has admitted that clubs from the
Premier League including Arsenal have indicated an interest in him.

The 19-year-old Belgian personally ruined Liverpool's party at France.
Posing all kind of problems to the visitors defence and eventually
getting his name on the scoresheet via a spectacular free-kick to
earn the home side a slender advantage. Albeit, they were taken to the
cleaners at Anfield, and the English side progressed at their expense.

Eden maintained that he was astonished at the number of inquiries he
was receiving, but he asserted that he loved Lille and would only
consider a move away from the French club in the future, or if the
club is willing to part with him.

"I'm flattered by the reports, but I have a contract with Lille until
2014 and the club want to keep me," he told Sky.

"Maybe one day I will play in the Premier League, or the Spanish
League, or some other club, it will depend on Lille," he concluded.
