Chelsea star Eden Hazard has today insisted that he has no interest in a rumoured summer switch to Paris Saint-Germain, telling L'Equipe that he is fully focused on matching talent to consistency at Stamford Bridge in his bid to be considered among the planet's elite players.
Hazard has been spearhead behind Chelsea's challenge for silverware so far this season, taking his Premier League tally to 12 goals in 25 matches with a hat-trick against Newcastle United last weekend.
The Belgian's brilliance has seen PSG persistently linked with the wing wizard in recent months, but Hazard is adamant that he sees his long-term future in the Premier League and plans to continue learning from senior players like Frank Lampard and Samuel Eto'o.
In an interview with L'Equipe the 23-year-old said: "It's never been a question of me leaving Chelsea. I feel good in this club and I still have plenty of things to do.
"It's flattering to read that PSG are interested in me. But it doesn't bother me. I know very well what I want to do, where I'm headed. No one will change my mind. My objective is to be the best with Chelsea."
"They've won so much [Lampard, Eto'o and John Terry). I draw inspiration from them every day, it helps me to grow," he said. "That's why I think my best years are still to come."
Hazard's upturn in form has helped Jose Mourinho's side move into pole position in a congested title race, with the Blues sat top of the Premier League following a nine-match unbeaten run in the top flight.
Goals and assists have flowed for the diminutive forward since adapting to Mourinho's style of play, laying on eight strikes for team-mates alongside netting 14 goals in all competitions.
