Arsenal target Eden Hazard won’t be arriving on the Emirates Stadium as many hoped and expected as club official Jean-Michel Vandamme dismissed the possibility of letting the attacking midfielder go during the January transfer market opening.
“We have received some very interesting propositions for Hazard, but the player will stay with us until at least the end of the season,”
“He certainly won’t leave until then. Then, if we can find someone willing to make an appropriate offer, we will look to reach an agreement.
“Interest from Inter Milan? There are clubs in all of the major European leagues that want him.
“His price? I think a player like Hazard is worth at least €40million (£33m).”
Arsenal were interested in Hazard in the summer as well and went with what was rumoured to be a generous offer for Hazard which was unfortunately snubbed by French side Lille which wanted to have the best squad possible for this year’s Champions League experience.
Arsenal is still on the lookout for an attacking midfielder after they missed out on Reus and Hazard and they’re also likely to lose out on German wonderkid Mario Gotze. Who do you think will join?
