Eden possessed by PSG temptation


Lille winger Eden Hazard says only God knows where his future lies next summer.

The Belgian international revealed last year that he's ready to leave the Ligue 1 champions for pastures new.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have all been linked with a move for Hazard, but the 21-year-old admits he could make a move to big spending Paris St Germain.

"Of course, the interest from Paris is tempting. Paris Saint-Germain are a great club," he told Le Parisien.

"And especially with a coach like [Carlo] Ancelotti, that makes you even more keen. Only God know where I will be playing my football in 2012 though."

Arsenal's interest in Hazard has been the most persistent in recent months, while north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur were said to have scouted Hazard a fortnight ago.

Chelsea have in recent weeks become the frontrunners for Hazard, but have yet to agree a deal.

Title rivals Manchester City and Manchester United are also in contention and with Joe Cole having gone the other way, Liverpool were also hopeful of striking a deal.

However, with Hazard unlikely to leave Lille, who crashed out of the group stage of the Champions League, for a club not participating in Europe's premier club competition, the tussle for the top four could end up being the deciding factor in landing a deal for Hazard.

With United, City and Spurs all looking likely to qualify for the Champions League next season, the three way race for the final spot, between Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool, will be the crucial in the trio's attempts to sign Hazard.
