Eden Hazard reveals he could join Tottenham this summer
Tuesday 14 February 2012
Belgium and Lille midfielder Eden Hazard admits he could join Tottenham this summer.
The 21-year-old is one of the hottest properties in Europe at the moment and is reported to have attracted the interest of the likes of Chelsea, Real Madrid and Arsenal.
The midfielder appears to have his heart set on a move to the Barclays Premier League this summer and he concedes White Hart Lane may be his destination.
Hazard denied reports he has already agreed terms with Tottenham, but he did tell Belgian TV station RTBF that a move to join Harry Redknapp's team is possible.
He said: "Maybe it will be Tottenham. It is a great English club.
"I said that I would go to England and there is very good players (at Spurs)."
"I have not yet signed. This is going to happen soon".
The youngster, who plays predominantly on the wing, has not ruled out a move to the Primera Division, however.
"Spain is perhaps more my style of game but (if I move there) it must be to either Barcelona or Real Madrid."
Hazard made his Lille debut as a 16-year-old and has gone on to become one of the French club's most important players.
Last season he became the youngest player to win the Ligue 1 player of the year award after helping Lille complete a domestic double and he made his international debut at the age of 17.
