I know it sounds a bit farfetched, and I am certain that any Arsenal fan would snap Roman Abramovich’s hand off if he offered to sell us Eden Hazard as long as Wenger gave him Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in return, but is it such an impossible deal to believe?
According to the latest rumours, Eden Hazard has made his mind up to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season and the likelihood is that he will probably go to one of the superstar moneybag teams like Real Madrid or PSG, but there are also whispers that Abramovich is keen to take the Ox to Chelsea as a replacement for the future….
We all know that the English youngster has showed lots of promise in the past, but in his current form he is having enough trouble trying to convince Wenger to give him a starting place in the first team, although he should by rights be an automatic choice by now. He seems to be lacking the confidence of his youth, and although Wenger has kept faith in the ex-Saints winger for some time I am sure he would allow him to move to Chelsea if the right offer came in.
Hazard has been an Arsenal target since he was about 16 years old and Wenger admitted that he came close to buying him before Chelsea decided to outbid Le Prof over and above the Arsenal limit, but would Wenger now go the extra mile if the Belgian came back on to the market.
Wenger has already done some business with Petr Cech last summer, and with Mourinho out of the way perhaps Arsene could go and have another chat with Abramovich over Eden Hazard, and gently suggest that the Blues could have the Ox as a sweetener for the deal?
Who would say no to that?
