Apparent Liverpool Target Lille midfielder Eden Hazard has seemingly ruled out a move to the Anfield club. The 19 year old Belgian playmaker is regarded as one of the hottest young prospects in Europe at the moment and has earned praise for his performances from Zinedine Zidane no less. Hazard has seen his profile raised in recent months as he has led Lille’s charge both for the Ligue One title and in their Europa League campaign. Some of Europe’s top clubs are looking at the young midfielder and French legend Zidane recently commented that he could be a “star of the future’ and become a “great footballer.” High praise indeed, and Hazard responded to the comments by saying:
“Such praise makes me very happy, especially from Zidane. If one day I leave Lille, I will go to Real or Arsenal.”
His apparent desire to leave Lille for either London or Spain, appears to rule him out of a move to Liverpool in the summer and will disappoint Rafa Benitez who was reportedky imporessed by the player in his performances against the Reds.
