Another rumor, another target? Could this transfer ignite Arsenal’s season if it happens?

BBC Sport have reported that The Gunners are on the verge of bidding 26m for the 20-year old Belgium wonder kid.

Hazard, a distant cousin of Thomas Vermaelen was named Ligue 1 player of the season, after Lille’s league and cup double.

BBC Sport understands Wenger is a huge fan of Hazard and could make a move for the midfielder before the transfer window shuts on 31 August.

But Lille general manager Frederic Paquet told BBC Sport: “Eden will not be leaving this season.

“We are aware of interest from some of the biggest clubs in Europe but we are not prepared to sell.

    he will make a diff……lets jst see

  • Shay

    if it happens, which it won’t, he will be amazing. He already has a superb understanding with Gervinho

  • goonerjay

    he would be awesome… I just don’t think Wenger would spend that soort of money on another winger when we have plenty and not sure Arsenal as a club currently have the pulling power to get a player with his talents

    like who?


    both impact players

    Nasri gone, Rosciky finished 2 years ago. Alex C too young.

    We badly need wingers

    Another young midfielder to go with all the others. Young Eden obviously has talent but he needs to hit the ground running, Ligue 1 is not the Premiership. Wenger needs experience, defenders and a leader, that should be the priority at the moment.
