Lille have put Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool on red alert after slapping a £26million price tag onto winger Eden Hazard.

The 20-year-old has caught the eye last season bagging seven goals and eight assists to help the French club seal the Ligue 1 title.

The Belgium international is known for his pace and his availability will alert top clubs all over Europe.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is a known admirer and has made several inquiries for the midfielder.

But Lille are keen to keep Hazard and L’Equipe claim they have responded to the Gunner’s interest by demanding a massive fee for him.

Wenger is not short of money following the £35million sale of Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona and the expected £25million departure of Samir Nasri to Manchester City.

Chelsea are also in the hunt for a winger to help unlock the door for record signing Fernando Torres to start scoring.

Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas has had a £17.5million bid rejected for Valencia’s Juan Mata, with the Spanish side wanting closer to £30million.

Liverpool have also been monitoring Hazard’s position but after spending over £50million on fresh talent already this summer will need to offload a number of fringe players to finance the deal.

Lille president Michel Seydoux insists he wants to keep Hazard and hopes the youngster wants to remain at the club too.

“I am not sure he wants to leave anyway,” Seydoux said. “He knows his status here and at a large club there is much more uncertainty.”
