Arsenal eye Emirates Stadium move for 116-cap star who once cost £130m

Arsenal will explore the possibility of bringing Eden Hazard back to the Premier League this summer, according to journalist Dean Jones.

Hazard spent seven years at Chelsea prior to joining Real Madrid for £130m in 2019, and a return to England could be on the cards for the 31-year-old.

What is the latest news involving Hazard?

The 116-cap international has had a torrid time at Real Madrid, largely due to injuries.

In his three years at the Santiago Bernabeu, Hazard has made just 65 appearances across all competitions, scoring six goals and providing 10 assists. He is currently sidelined with a leg injury.

Having struggled to make a meaningful impact over the past three seasons, Hazard’s future at Real Madrid is now in doubt. It is understood that Arsenal are interested in trying to sign Hazard at the end of the season.

What has Jones said about Hazard potentially joining Arsenal?

Jones thinks Arsenal will try to sign Hazard in the coming months, and they will be hoping the winger wants to try his luck in the Premier League again after previously flourishing at Chelsea.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT about Hazard, Jones said: “I think Arsenal will look at his situation and give it a go, and hope that he fancies coming back to London.”

Would Hazard be a good signing for Arsenal?

The main concern for Arsenal has to be Hazard’s injury history since he joined Real Madrid.

The Belgian has been unable to string together a consistent run of games in recent years due to numerous fitness setbacks.

If the Gunners aren’t confident of getting him back towards his best condition, there is no point in signing him.

However, there is no doubting Hazard’s ability, which he proved for a number of years when he was at Stamford Bridge. He scored 85 Premier League goals during his time at Chelsea, and was a joy to watch when at his best.

Getting him back to that level may not be easy, but if Arsenal can get a deal across the line and keep Hazard fit, he could still have plenty left to offer at the highest level.

Meanwhile, his experience could be useful for Mikel Arteta’s team, which is currently relying on a number of young players to try to get the club back into the top four.
