In-demand Lille playmaker Eden Hazard has revealed he would welcome the opportunity to turn out in Serie A.

The Belgium international is hot property right now, with there expected to be a clamour for his signature over the summer.

A bidding war could break out once the transfer window reopens, with the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool said to be keen.

Hazard has hinted in the past that he would prefer not to move to England, with his creative talents better suited to life in Spain or Italy.

That remains his stance for now, with reported interest from Inter Milan having captured his imagination.

Big clubs

"Italy fascinates me," said Hazard.

"One day I would like to play for a great team and I know that in Italy there are many big clubs, but for now I'm fine here.

"Serie A fascinates me and in the future I would like to try to play there.

"We'll see what happens. Some of the words from [Inter] president [Massimo] Moratti have made me very happy."
