We’ve already seen the comments made by Lille midfielder Eden Hazard in which he openly referred to Spurs when talking about a potential move to the Premiership. Here’s a reminder of what he said.
‘Maybe it will be Tottenham. It is a great English club,’.
‘I said that I would go to England and there is very good players at Spurs.
‘I have not yet signed. This is going to happen soon’
Naturally these comments are a long way off admitting to a done deal but Hazard’s Lille team mate, on loan Argentine defender Mauro Cetto has also linked the Belgian international to White Hart Lane.
“This year he has grown and in terms of goals and assists, he is incredible”, Cetto said.
“He makes a difference. He is a complete player.
“But he will play in England, at Tottenham.
“I think that his future will be there.”
The French media are also claiming that Spurs are in the lead for Hazard’s signature, despite reported interest from both Manchester clubs and English bookmakers also show Tottenham as favourites to capture the Belgian.
So is there really some ‘In the Know’ stuff here or is it all talk?
