Chelsea have been linked with the young Lille midfielder Eden Hazard for some time, but the Belgian international seeme to indicate he was keen on moving to the newly-rich PSG in Ligue 1.
But now he says his future lies away from France, and he fully expects to move to the Premier League in the summer and he names Chelsea among the few top clubs that interest him.
He was quoted as saying: “I have played over 100 Ligue 1 matches, I’m young but I want to know something else. Paris is tempting with the players there now but I prefer to go abroad.
“I think I’m heading to England, the style of play suits me there and I think it’s in this league that I can learn as much.
“We know the great English clubs. It will be a club where I’m sure to play with a play style that suits me.
“I don’t know for which club I’ll sign yet. Manchester, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham are all great.”
Roman Abramovich certainly seems very keen to take Hazard to Chelsea, and I have a funny feeling that Andre Villas-Boas is aiming to build his new team around the extremely talented Belgian international.
