Eden Hazard admits he is 'flattered' to be linked with a move to the Premier League, but insists he is happy at Lille.
The Belgian starlet has seen his reputation rocket this season after a number of star showings in Ligue 1 and the Europa League.
The 19-year-old is now hot property, with a host of clubs across Europe monitoring his progress.
English sides including Liverpool and Arsenal are believed to be among those expressing an interest, with managers beginning to piece together their summer spending plans.
It is understood Lille would demand a hefty fee for a player with so much promise, but Hazard has revealed that he expects to leave France at some stage in the future.
"I am flattered by the reports, but I have a contract with Lille until 2014 and the club want to keep me," the talented playmaker told skysports.com.
"Maybe one day I will play in the Premier League, or the Spanish league, or some other club, but it will depend on Lille."
