Interesting story from the Daily Mail..

Chelsea have put down a marker in the chase for Eden Hazard after it emerged they have already tested Lille's resolve over hanging on to Europe's most wanted teenager.

Sources close to the 19-year old wing sensation claim he struck a deal with Lille president Michel Seydoux over his immediate future after Chelsea made an approach for him in the summer.

After rejecting Chelsea's bid, Seydoux promised to look favourably on any subsequent offers at the end of the season, provided Hazard stayed put and tried to help them win their first French League title in 57 years.

'For all the interest in him, Chelsea are the only ones who have made an approach,' said a source.

'He has agreed with the president that he will not leave in the January window, but something may well happen at the end of the season.

'Of course, Real Madrid would be an attractive proposition, but Eden really likes Arsenal's style of play under Arsene Wenger.

'There is even something of Sami Nasri about him. He can play on either flank or through the middle, and he has great pace and technique. Arsenal would suit him perfectly.'

Contract extensions may also indicate that he might not come cheap for potential suitors. A way for a club to say if you want him so badly, cough up :)
