Aston Villa: Unai Emery keen on Eden Hazard

Aston Villa: Unai Emery keen on Eden Hazard -Aston Villa News

Aston Villa manager Unai Emery is reportedly keen on signing Real Madrid forward Eden Hazard.

The Lowdown: Hazard at the Bernabeu

The Belgian winger made the move to the Bernabeu from Chelsea in 2019 but has struggled to live up to his £103m transfer fee.

The 31-year-old has scored only seven goals in 72 games in all competitions, making just three La Liga appearances during the current campaign.

The Belgium international, who was labelled ‘clinical’ by his manager Carlo Ancelotti, is set to enter the final 18 months of his contract in the New Year, and it looks as if Villa could be keen on bringing him back to the Premier League.

The Latest: Villa linked with Hazard

Reports from Spanish media have emerged regarding Villa and Hazard. It has been claimed that Emery will give the green light to a possible deal and that the Villans see the 31-year-old playing a ‘leading role’ as they look to reinforce their attack.

Real Madrid are destined to part ways with Hazard and will hope to receive a ‘reasonable’ fee for the player.

The Verdict: Gamble?

It’s safe to say that Hazard has suffered a dip in his performances in recent years, with 16 separate injuries in his time at Real Madrid playing their part.

Therefore, it could be a gamble by Emery and NSWE to try and sign the forward, and you’d expect that an overall deal would cost a substantial amount when you factor in Hazard’s reported £381,000-per-week wage.

Hazard at Villa Park?

Yes, why not!

Yes, why not!

Not too bothered!

It will be interesting to see if Villa do indeed make their move, and with Hazard set to feature for his country in the World Cup later this month, his displays could be one to watch closely.
