Hazard, 20, has regularly been linked with Real Madrid and Arsenal in the past, while newly-rich Paris St Germain have expressed an interest and recent reports claimed Inter Milan had a €40 million bid rejected.

However, after winning Ligue 1 last season, Hazard will get the chance to play in the Champions League with Lille next season and does not feel the need to move on at this stage.

"Right now I'm at Lille," he said in De Standaard. "I'm a part of the team. I've spoken to the manager and I know what I have at Lille.

"I know I can make progress with Lille. There's a good atmosphere in the squad and I'm surrounded by players who play good football."

Belgium international Hazard is under contract until 2015.
