Arsene Wenger admits that he will try and sign Lille midfielder Eden Hazard, but only when he is made available for transfer.
• Wenger struggles over defender search
Wenger has been watching Ligue 1's Young Player of the Year for the past two seasons and, although the Belgian is currently rated at around £15 million, has claimed he will make a move for the midfielder when the time is right.
''He's a player that I have followed for some time, but I do not want to unsettle Lille now,'' explained Wenger. ''When he is available for transfer, we will see if there is the possibility to sign him.''
Hazard is currently contracted to the French league leaders until 2014 and any deal looks likely to be delayed until the summer.
