Wenger even held talks with Hazard’s agent in his home about a potential move, but eventually lost the battle to Chelsea on financial grounds.

Talking to BeIN Sports, Wenger said,

“Yes, I wanted to take him.”

“I had his agent at my home but again the barrier was financial and Chelsea made an effort that I couldn’t make.

“He can be one of the players who grows into the Messi, Ronaldo stature if he continues to develop well.”

With latest reports surfacing about a cold war- like row between Jose Mourinho and Eden Hazard, Will Arsenal take this to their advantage  and make a cheeky bid for the Belgian wizard?  Only time will tell us how things will turn out in summer transfer window.
