Liverpool chief denies agreement for Arsenal target

Published Add your comment

Damien Comolli has rebuffed claims that Liverpool have first refusal to sign Arsenal target Eden Hazard.

The Lille playmaker is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in European football and, hence, has consitently been linked with a big-money move away from France.

Liverpool are thought to have maintained an interest in the 20-year-old for a number of months and, after Joe Cole left Anfield for the Stade Lille Metropole last month, reports suggested this had strengthened the Reds' link to the Belgian.

However, according to Comolli, Liverpool do not have an agreement with the French champions regarding Hazard's future destination.


"No, it's not true," said the Liverpool director of football. "I've seen those reports, but it's not true. He's a very good player, as everybody knows, but there's no truth in it."

Along with Liverpool, Arsenal have seen themselves conisistently linked with Hazard this year, with the Gunners alleged to have been pursuing the midfielder during the transfer window.

Arsene Wenger has previously been outed as an admirer of Hazard, but whether or not Arsenal made a formal approach remains unclear.
