Arsenal face hitch in £26m midfielder chase

Arsenal target Eden Hazard will not be sold this summer, according to Lille boss Frederic Paquet.

Hazard is one of a few players at Lille who has been connected with a move away from the French club, and while the transfer window is still open for another week, Paquet insists he won’t be taking anymore queries.

"Our players are not on the market for Arsenal or any other club,” Paquet said.


"I have also spoken with the players and they are willing to stay here. They are very excited to play in the Champions League."

Arsenal have long been chasing Hazard, though with the BBC rating the Belgium international at £26 million, Arsene Wenger has been carefully considering whether the star is worth the money.

Lille teammate Moussa Sow is also said to be on Arsenal’s transfer hitlist, and while Wenger has said that he hopes to land a midfielder this week, nutting out a deal with Lille looks to be all the more difficult given their tough stance over selling any more players.
