Real Madrid are preparing a bid for Gunners target Eden Hazard, with the Spanish side hoping to lock down the midfielder by January, according to Metro.

Hazard has long been the subject of speculation regarding a move away from Lille, but the French club have been desperate to hold on to their £25 million rated star.

While Arsenal have been chasing Hazard, Arsene Wenger was reportedly turned off by the 20-year-old’s price tag, though the Gunners manager still hopes a deal can be done to bring the youngster to Arsenal in the near future.


But with Real in the mix now for Hazard, Arsenal will need to accept that if they want Hazard, they will need to pay a large fee for his services.

Real will still be hopeful of bringing the fee for Hazard down somewhat, particularly with the new financial fair play rules coming in, and in this case, the Gunners would still have a chance to steal the march on their European rivals, the paper claims.
