Hazard: Rising star
Lille starlet Eden Hazard has admitted he is flattered to be linked to some of Europe's biggest clubs.
The likes of Barcelona, Chelsea and Liverpool have all been credited with an interest in the 18-year-old Belgium international.
Hazard has conceded he is aware of the interest in his services, but insists he is committed to seeing out his Lille deal - which runs until the summer of 2012.
"Interest from Barcelona, Chelsea and Liverpool? That brings great pleasure," he told Le 10 Sport.
"But I'm a Lille player. Everything is fine here. I just want one thing, to carry on here."
When quizzed on where would eventually like to end up, the teenager would prefer moves to Arsenal or Real Madrid.
"Arsenal and Real Madrid," he responded, when asked who his dream clubs are. "I'd prefer to join them rather than Barcelona or Chelsea."
