Arsenal and Chelsea 'target' Eden Hazard welcomes interest
Thursday 10 November 2011
Lille midfielder Eden Hazard is proud to be a reported target of Inter Milan.
The Belgium international has reportedly attracted interest from top European clubs, including Serie A giants Inter, Real Madrid, Chelsea and Arsenal.
Hazard was instrumental in Lille winning the French league and the French Cup last season and was voted the Ligue 1's Player of the Year by his fellow professionals.
"Inter is a fantastic squad," Hazard told Corriere dello Sport.
"They have great champions. If you play for a club like Inter you have to be considered a top player.
"Of course the interests of top clubs can only please me.
"When a great club like Inter that has won so much wants me, this can only make me proud."
The 20-year-old insists, however, that he will not make a decision regarding his future until the end of the season.
"For the time being I'm not thinking about the future," Hazard said.
"My focus is on Lille. It's my agent that takes care of negotiations."
Hazard is under contract with Lille until June 2015.
