Lille star a target

Tottenham Hotspur

Harry Redknapp has confirmed the club will be making an effort to sign Lille wide man Eden Hazard when the transfer window opens.

Hazard appears to be on the wanted list of most of Europe’s top clubs with Real Madrid, Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal all rumored to have either made bids for him or to be preparing them for the summer.

The Belgium international appears to have the pick of clubs to go to and reports in France over the weekend claimed out of all his suitors he was close to joining Spurs during the last transfer window in January.

The 21-year-old, rated at around the £35m mark, has recently said that the two Spanish giants of Barcelona and Real Madrid are interested him but Redknapp has confirmed he is on his wanted list.

The Spurs boss told reporters that a move could be on for the summer, he said: “‘Hazard was a player we’d spoken about a few weeks ago.

“We were talking about the possibility of getting him. He’s definitely on our list.”
