Arsene Wenger has declared his interest in Lille playmaker Eden Hazard.
The £30m-rated star was a target of clubs such as Chelsea and Manchester City during the recent transfer window.
"I like Eden Hazard a lot, and for many reasons," Wenger said.
"His creative ability, his talent for unbalancing opponents, his vision of the game, and his consummate skill in making the final pass all make him an in-demand player.
"Hazard has what it takes to play for a top-level club, and Arsenal are a top-level club."
Hazard has previously stated that he is looking for a move to the Premier League at the end of the season.
