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.”
