With the January transfer still months away, it’s not at all unusual to read about players being linked with a possible move to Arsenal, including the always-popular Eden Hazard.
The Belgium International dominated the headlines in the summer with many reporting that he was the one selected by manager Arsene Wenger to replace Samir Nasri in the Arsenal midfield but after winning the French League with Lille last season, the youngster opted to stay in France, for at least one more season.
One player who packed his things and left for North London was Ivory Coast’s Gervinho who this week was quoted by The Sun as saying that the 20-year “is a young player with enormous quality who has everything it takes to triumph in England”.
In April 2010, the talented midfielder was quoted as saying that if one day he leaves Les Dogues it would either be for Spanish giants Real Madrid or indeed Arsenal, in England.
And months later, in January of this year, manager Arsene Wenger was full of praise for the Belgian as he declared that the Gunners are following his progress as he is a real talent who is good enough to play for Arsenal.
After a slow start, the Gunners are slowly climbing back the table in the English Premier League and with Hazard confirming that he will stay in put in January and with Wenger not a fan of the January transfer window, it will be interesting to see, next summer, if the 19-year old will again be linked with a move to the Emirates.
