Lille winger Eden Hazard should join a club below the biggest in the world, according to his father.

The Belgian has recently admitted his interest in joint either Arsenal or Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window, after revealing last year he was ready to leave the French champions for a new challenge abroad.

Hazard's revelation that a move to Spurs was close to being completed has however been quashed by his father, who suggests he move to a club below the biggest in the world.

"For now I can only say what Eden said on Monday on TV: Yes, there is interest from Spurs, and no, there's no offer," he said.

"The priority for Eden is one thing: games. Opportunities. It might be better to join a club just below the biggest."

Despite being 10 points ahead in the Premier League, having won six league titles since Spurs' last, Arsenal can claim to be the dominant force in north London.

Furthermore, constant interest from The Gunners hasn't been followed up by a firm offer, while Hazard admits he hopes a move to Spurs goes through soon.

"The transfer is still pending," he said earlier in the week. "I have not signed anything yet, but I hope it will happen in the near future."

But as for Hazard's feelings on Arsenal, there's little doubt he considers them to be a genuine contender for his signature.

"Of course," he added. "It is always more fun to play for a team that plays like they do. Arsenal also have a great coach and French players.

"There are several clubs that interest me in England, and Arsenal are one of them."

Tottenham Hotspur
