Lille put £43m price-tag on Arsenal target

Arsenal have been told by Lille that they will have to pay £43m for French playmaker Eden Hazard, according to The Daily Mail.

Hazard is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in Europe and is being pursued by a host of top European sides including Spanish giants Real Madrid and Italian side Inter Milan. The 20 year old has been one of the bright sparks for LOSC this season and helped them win the Ligue 1 title last season, but strangely did not make a move this summer.

The 20 year old’s development has been astronomical and Hazard now believes that his talent levels are at such a stage that he wants to leave the club at the end of the season. The huge fee could ward Arsenal off making a bid, as Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is not keen on paying such a price.

Lille president Michel Seydoux said: ‘The price is £43m and this is clear in advance. We are at a time when the club is having a real discussion about what to do, but it will depend on many factors. First, our economic potential and then it depends on the proposals we receive. Nobody is unsellable. You would be able to look for solutions in the market with the money we’d receive."
