Lille’s attacking midfield star Eden Hazard has reiterated his “dream” of signing for Arsenal, with Arsene Wenger looking to make the starlet’s dream come true in the summer.
The Arsenal manager’s main priority for the January transfer window is to bring in a defender if Thomas Vermaelen continues to struggle for fitness, but he plans to give serious consideration to a move for Hazard in the summer.
Hazard, dubbed “little Messi” by former coach Claude Puel, has indicated he would like to join Arsenal when he eventually leaves Lille and Wenger has now confirmed he is interested in the Belgium international.
“It’s a very good question. We follow him. And personally I think he’s a real talent, and he’s good enough to play for Arsenal, yes.
“In the offensive department we have many players. At the end of the season we’ll have a look at the situation but at the moment it’s completely ruled out”, Wenger said after being asked about Hazard by a French reporter.
The same journalist then said he met Hazard yesterday, and revealed that the 20-year-old told him that he “dreams to play for Arsenal”.
“It’s important for your dreams to come true,” Wenger replied.
