Tottenham linked with Lille duo

Lille midfielder Eden HazardThe Metro has reported that Harry Redknapp is interested in signing Lille’s highly rated duo Gervinho and Eden Hazard, after losing patience with Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe and Roman Pavlyuchenko – who only managed 16 goals in 82 Premier League appearances between them.

Eden Hazard has been surrounded by constant speculation for months now, with Arsenal, Manchester United and Inter Milan, amongst others being linked with the Belgium starlet. Redknapp may find it hard to land Hazard, not just due to competition for his signature but the Lille man has been quoted this week saying, “Serie A fascinates me and in the future I would like to play there – we’ll see”.

Gervinho, who has been linked with Newcastle United and Arsenal in the past, has been at Lille for two seasons, making 54 competitive appearances with a healthy goal return of 25 in those matches.
