Cabaye: Hazard should join Arsenal

Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye believes his former Lille team-mate Eden Hazard should move to Arsenal this summer.


Cabaye was Hazard’s captain at the Ligue 1 club and he feels the Gunners style of play under manager Arsene Wenger would suit the Belgian winger.


Hazard was linked with a move to Emirates Stadium last summer but nothing materialised and he has since been touted as a possible target for a number of clubs, though Cabaye believes the similarities between Arsenal and his former club make it a sensible move.


“Eden and England, it would go very well together,” Cabaye told L'Equipe.

“Tottenham is a good club even if right now, there are some troubles with the coach. Arsenal, it would be really good.

“Lille is quite similar to both in terms of game or mind. After, I do not know if he is in touch with the Gunners but I think it would be the right club for him.”


The Toon midfielder was in France to promote the new France national team kit when he made his comments about the 21-year-old.


Hazard is a highly-rated skilful winger, though Arsenal’s reported interest has been mentioned less and less since details of the sort of money Lille were expecting to make from the sale.


If Hazard were to join the Gunners, he would line up next to Gervinho - another team-mate from Lille’s double-winning side in 2010-11.
