Liverpool have reportedly continued their chase of Lille starlet Eden Hazard.

The 19-year-old midfielder has previously appeared on the Anfield radar, with former boss Rafa Benitez thought be courting the player last season.

Despite failing to land the player, followed by a change in manager at Liverpool, the club are still keen to bring the player to Merseyside. According to the Daily Telegraph, club ambassador Kenny Dalglish watched the player against Levski Sofia and was suitably impressed.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United are also thought to be interested in the player, while European giants Real Madrid and Barcelona have been monitoring the situation as competition grows for Liverpool.

Hazard joined the youth setup at Lille in 2005, and made his debut for Les Dogues in 2007. After featuring for Belgium at several youth levels, he made his senior international debut in 2008 and already has 16 caps to his name.

Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson has been promised funds to spend in the January transfer window thanks to the takeover by NESV, and has been linked to a string of attack-minded players in the past week.

Hazard would cost the Anfield club in the region of €12 million, a slice of the reported £35 million that has been promised to the Liverpool manager.
