Eden Hazard: Lille playmaker is a transfer target for Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp
Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed that Lille playmaker Eden Hazard is one of the club's summer transfer targets.
Hazard is one of European football's brightest talents and the 21-year-old is widely expected to leave French champions Lille at the end of the season.
The Belgium international is keen to make the Premier League his next port of call and has been linked with the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea.
Reports in France recently claimed that Spurs had won the race to snap up Hazard, who subsequently confirmed he would be open to moving to White Hart Lane.

Redknapp has now admitted he has discussed the prospect of adding Hazard to his squad and any deal would be a coup for Spurs given the level of interest in the schemer.
"Hazard is a player that we have spoken about," said Redknapp.
"He is a player who is definitely on our list.
"We spoke about him a few weeks ago. We started talking about possibly getting him in then."
