Liverpool and Arsenal face competition in the race to sign long-term Belgian target Eden Hazard.

The international winger has been on the radar of a number of Barclays Premier League clubs for several seasons now, with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger just one of the managers sending scouts to watch the player.

Director of Football strategy at Anfield, Damien Comolli, is also a known admirer of the player, and has hopes to bring the player to Liverpool using his connections in French football.

Lille president Michel Seydoux is eager to keep hold of his prized-asset, but Sportingo claim the Gunners will step-up their interest in the summer, and Wenger hopes to reach an agreement before the next transfer window opens in an effort to bring the player to Arsenal.

Kenny Dalglish is rumoured to be a fan of the prodigious 20-year-old, and will be eager to state the interest of Liverpool before the Ligue 1 side come to a 'gentleman's agreement' over the player.

Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Chelsea are also thought to be keen on the player, with reports in the Independent claiming the later will make a move for Hazard at the end of the season and continue their big-spending from January.

"We follow him (Hazard), and personally I think he’s a real talent, and he’s good enough to play for Arsenal, yes," said Wenger mid-way through the transfer window as speculation gathered of Arsenal trying to bring the player to the Emirates.

Hazard has left the door open to both Liverpool and Arsenal in the past, but gave a hint that a move to Anfield would appeal.


"Recently, the press have been writing about interest from Liverpool, and it is nice to hear your name being mentioned everywhere, especially with the best teams in the world," said Hazard.

Both the Merseysiders and Gunners appear keen to bring the player to England, but with the Blues joining the race it appears a triple transfer tussle could ensue.
