Arsenalwinger Gervinho has spoken highly of his former team mate Eden Hazard and feels the 20 year old youngster would be a hit if he were to move to England.
The winger has been the subject of massive speculation for the last twelve months with teams such as Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool, Real Madrid and PSG all being linked with the youngster. Gervinho though feels that if he has suggested he will leave at the end of the season then he has the ability to be a success in England.
“Hazard is a young player with enormous quality, if he has decided to leave, it is normal for clubs to be interested, as he has the level to triumph in a big league like England.”
The Arsenal winger added:
“Eden has learned a lot at Lille, and I believe he could succeed abroad. Where he goes is up to the clubs. But it will be a big operation.”
Whilst Arsenal have been monitoring the player much longer than others they may find themselves victims of their own success where scouting is concerned and with Real Madrid now interested, the price of the youngster is likely to inflate next summer, perhaps, to a level that Arsenal will no longer be able to compete with.
With Arsenal already having Hazard’s former team mate Gervinho on board this is likely to give them a small edge however it is believed the young Lille player fancies a move to Spain instead of England.
