Lyon have confirmed their interest in landing Belgian ace Eden Hazard.

The French giants are keen to raid Lille for in-demand Hazard, but they already realise he may be out of their reach.

The 19-year-old midfielder is one of the hottest prospects in Europe and a summer move looks likely.

A host of English clubs are interested, while Hazard has expressed his fondness for Real Madrid and Arsenal.

Lyon are also keen and their interest was confirmed by chairman Jean-Michel Aulas.

"We are attracted to Eden Hazard, but we were scared by the fee set," said Aulas.

"But Lille is in debt and few clubs, even in Europe, can make such big investments."
