Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp says he faces a tough task to bring Lille winger Eden Hazard to the club.

The Belgian international revealed last year he wished to leave the Ligue 1 champions to further his career abroad.

Spurs are among those reportedly interest in the 21-year-old, but Redknapp says he faces a tough task bringing him to the club.

"Our chairman is willing to pay for an exceptional talent, like Eden Hazard," he is quoted as saying by L'Equipe.

"I have seen him several times recently, in Marseille [in January] and then also against PSG in the final of the Coupe de France [last May].

"But I also know that Manchester United are looking at him and also Manchester City. It will be difficult to get him, but I like him a lot."

Hazard is among the brightest young talents coming out of Ligue 1 and is expected to attract interest from throughout Europe, with Inter Milan and Real Madrid among those expected to take an interest.

Talk of Redknapp planning for the summer transfer window, is the biggest hint yet that the 65-year-old is ready to continue as Spurs boss beyond the end of the season, despite being hotly tipped for the vacant England managers position.

Tottenham have also been linked with Marseille striker Loic Remy, while Montpellier forward Olivier Giroud, top scorer in Ligue 1, is also gathering interest.
