Hazard: Not keen on Prem
Reported Arsenal target Eden Hazard has revealed he is not interested in a potential move to the Premier League.
The Lille midfielder has caught the eye of clubs across Europe this season after a string of strong performances in Ligue 1.
Rated at £20million, the 20-year-old is believed to be on the radar of Arsene Wenger, with Liverpool also said to be among the potential suitors.
Yet despite interest from some of the biggest clubs in the Premier League, the Belgian believes he is not best suited to English football.
"I appreciate England a lot, Germany as well, but my characteristics respond more to Spanish football," Hazard is quoted as saying in The Sun.
"Furthermore, this country corresponds to my temperament, the heat and the beautiful stadiums."
