Arsenal planning shock raid for Chelsea favourite

Eden Hazard news

Eden Hazard to Arsenal?

Arsenal have emerged as shock contenders to sign former Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard this summer, according to Foot Mercato.

The Gunners are currently with a realistic chance of qualifying for the Champions League after an extended gap of five seasons.

Amidst this, the club have been linked with several elite players, and it is now reported that they hold a surprise interest in Hazard.

The Belgian has made just 65 appearances for Madrid over the past two-and-a-half seasons amid injuries and competition for places.

He has been largely unscathed this term, but Carlo Ancelotti has made it clear that there are many players ahead of him in the pecking order.

While Hazard is not looking to leave the club, it is reported that Madrid would entertain his potential exit during the next transfer window.

A loan departure has been touted for a while. The Gunners have a 'real interest' and are said to have made 'first contacts' for the Belgian.
