Eden Hazard
Tottenham could have won the race to sign Hazard.

Sought-after signing Eden Hazard is considering a move to England, but the playmaker won't yet commit to a specific club, as Tottenham were heavily connected to the playmaker last night.

Countless clubs have been confirmed as interested in the services of Hazard, with Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea all admitting they are monitoring the Belgium international in preparation for summer.

Tottenham were thought to be unable to match any bids from the bigger spending clubs, but last night numerous press outlets were claiming that Spurs were hoping to pull off one of their biggest signing coups in years to land the star.

And Hazard has admitted to being flattered by the prospect of a move to Tottenham, and won't shut the door on White Hart Lane just yet, particularly while Harry Redknapp is still committed to the club.

"I have not signed anything at Tottenham," Hazard told talkshow La Tribune on Belgian-based TV station RTBF.

"Maybe I will play there next season. It is a nice club with a lot of good players and absolutely a top coach.

"The transfer is still pending. I have not signed anything yet, but I hope it will happen in the near future."

Hazard pointed to the fact that he would get maximum game time at Tottenham as one of the reasons why he would consider moving there, with dream clubs Barcelona and Real Madrid offering a great deal of competition for a spot.

"Perhaps Spanish football would be better for me, rather than the English. But if you want to be champion, you would need to play with BarcelonaDescription: http://static.lingospot.com/spot/image/spacer.gif or Real Madrid," he explained.

"The opportunities would be much smaller. The competition would be strong at Tottenham too, but less so that at Barca or Real.

"I think I can learn the most in England. You play a big game every week and the atmosphere is great."
