According to SER padlockBorussia Dortmund now pose a serious threat to Arsenal in the race to sign Real Madrid striker Eden Hazard.
What is the story?
Well, foot market revealed that Arsenal held a meeting with Real Madrid over a loan deal for the Belgium international earlier this week.
Real Madrid are ready to sanction a loan exit as they hope to see Hazard rebuild his reputation at the World Cup ahead of a potential sale in 2023.
However, Borussia Dortmund could ruin things for Arsenal.
SER padlock think Signal Iduna Park is now the most likely destination for Hazard, for a number of reasons.
Firstly, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has a great relationship with Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke after brokering deals for Achraf Hakimi and Reiner Jesus.
Second, the £381,000 per week The man’s brother – Thorgan Hazard – already plays for Borussia Dortmund so that could be a big factor as well.
Arsenal should leave Eden Hazard at Borussia Dortmund
In our opinion, Arsenal should not sign Hazard and must give Borussia Dortmund a free run for his signature.
Mikel Arteta creates a fantastic and young team at the Emirates Stadium, where Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe and Gabriel Martinelli shine.
The transfer approach has been to sign young gems with room for improvement, like Aaron Ramsdale, so it would be a very unusual move if Hazard arrives in north London.
Therefore, all things considered, Arsenal should ignore the Belgian.
