Liverpool have apparently approached French side Lille with a view to signing their highly-rated young Belgian playmaker, Eden Hazard.
20 year old Hazard was yesterday named as the French league player of the year after a fantastic season where he guided Lille to their first title since 1954. Hazard is being courted by many of the world’s top clubs including Real Madrid, Arsenal and Inter Milan.
But it is Liverpool who have made the first move by asking Lille to keep them informed on any potential developments in Hazard’s future.
Speculation on the youngsters future will rumble on throughout the summer, but with Lille not prepared to let him go for any less than £25 million, it will be interesting to see which of Europe’s big clubs can afford to splash that amount of money.
