Premier League target Eden Hazard: I am focused on winning Ligue 1 with Lille and not thinking about my future

The forward has attracted Liverpool and Arsenal but refuses to speculate on his plans for next season and wants to wrap up the league title in France

Lille midfielder Eden Hazard has shunned talks regarding his future and insists that right now his main concern is winning the league title.

The 20-year-old has been one of the better young players in Europe this season and has played an integral role in Lille’s march in the championship race in France.

Hazard’s future has been the subject of speculation for several months and recent reports suggest that English giants Liverpool have made a formal bid for his services, while Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is also an admirer.

Hazard, though, is unfazed about rumours regarding his future and is fully concentrated on winning the title with Lille, who are six points clear in pole position with just two more rounds of matches left this campaign.

"I am just thinking about winning the league and we are almost there," said the Belgium international, according to Sky Sports. "I am not thinking about transfers. I have many contacts but my advisers and the club are the ones controlling that side of things.”

Reflecting on their narrow 1-0 victory over Sochaux on Wednesday evening, Hazard enthused: "I am happy to see Gervinho scoring and taking us closer to our dream. I want to win the league and transfer talk can wait for a bit."

Lille travel take on Paris Saint-Germain at the weekend.
