On loan Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole believes current teammate - and Arsenal target - Eden Hazard can become one of the world's best players.

Hazard is regarded as perhaps the finest young talent currently operating in European football, and has also been linked with the likes of Real Madrid and Inter Milan.

Cole, meanwhile, is thriving during a season-long spell away from Anfield having left Liverpool for Lille on the final day of the transfer window.

Hazard and Cole have combined particularly well for the French champions so far this term, and the 29-year-old has waxed lyrical about his younger club-mate.

"Eden is a special player with all the qualities of a great footballer. Physically, technically, mentally, he has everything," said Cole of the 20-year-old.

"He can certainly become one of the best players in the world. And on top of that, he is a good guy."


Hazard is thought to be on the radar of Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli, while Arsene Wenger also retains a long-standing interest in the young midfielder.

The Arsenal boss is reported to have attempted to bring the Belgian to the Emirates Stadium during the summer as he scoured the market for replacements for Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri.

Arsenal, though, failed to strike a deal for Hazard and instead settled for Mikel Arteta and Yossi Benayoun.
