Lille’s Eden Hazard has hinted that he may be set for a surprise summer transfer to Tottenham, according to The
The Belgian international, 21, has scored 25 goals in 131 appearances for Lille, and last season became the youngest player ever to win the UNFP Ligue One Player of the Year award. He has long been a target for fellow Premier League sides, with Arsenal and Chelsea having previously expressed an interest in bringing him to England, and has also attracted interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid. However, Tottenham could be on the cusp of a major coup if recent quotes attributed to Hazard are to be believed.
“I said I’d go to England – maybe I’ll go to Tottenham. It’s a great English club. There are great players, a great manager. I haven’t signed anything yet. This will happen soon.”
Tottenham have thus far declined to comment on the rumours, but if they prove true, it would be a blow to Arsenal, who have been tracking Hazard for over a year.
