Scouts from the quartet of English clubs have apparently been in France to check on the highly rated midfielder, who is rated at around £35 million by his employers
Four of English football’s biggest teams have been scouting Lille playmaker Eden Hazard as they eye up a move for one of world football’s best young talents.
According to The Evening Standard, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United all sent scouts to watch Hazard play against Paris Saint-Germain.
It is reported that Chelsea have sent scouts to watch him five times but with an alleged price tag of £35 million, they will have to dig deep into their pockets if they are to sign the Belgian international.
The 20-year-old is a hot prospect in Europe but agreed to stay in Lille this season after speculation about a move to most of the major clubs on the continent including Real Madrid and both Milan sides.
In his 18 appearances this season he has scored six goals and made five assists, although he failed to add to his tally in Sunday’s goalless draw at the Parc des Princes in Paris.
