Lille star Eden Hazard expects to leave France for the Barclays Premier League, amid reports he is being pursued by Chelsea and Arsenal.

The 21-year-old is one of the most highly rated young players currently operating in Europe, and could soon be granted a move to one of the continent's top clubs.

Inter Milan have also been linked with the Belgian, as have nouveau-riche Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint-Germain and, it has been claimed, Hazard could move to the Parce des Princes during January.

However, Hazard has categorically denied he will be joining Carlo Ancelotti's revolution in Paris, and is content with life in Lille for the time being.

"No, it's impossible," he told Canal+ when asked about a move to PSG.

"I still have lots of things to do with Lille, we could win one or two trophies.

"I want to concentrate on my game and enjoy life with my public and my team. I am not leaving."

Chelsea and Arsenal have been frequently credited with interest in Hazard, and the former were reported to have already entered into negotiations for his signature.

It, it would appear, a summer move to Stamford Bridge could be on the cards for Hazard, after he revealed he is likely to move to England.

"I think I'm heading to England, the style of play suits me," Hazard added.

"It is clear there are a lot of clubs interested in me. Paris? I have already said I would prefer to go abroad. I have [played in] over 100 Ligue 1 matches.

"Paris is tempting with the players there now but it's a considered decision."
