Former Arsenal attacker, Kevin Campbell, has urged Newcastle United to sign former Chelsea winger Eden Hazard in January.
Newcastle United and Aston Villa are reportedly set to make £17million moves for Hazard, who currently plays for Real Madrid, in the summer.
The Belgium international could be loaned out by Real Madrid with an obligatory clause to buy for £17million.
However, Campbell believes Hazard is worth the risk for the right amount of money, adding that Newcastle is a good option for him and the player can still deliver.
“The thing is, Hazard’s injury record is not much better than Allan Saint-Maximin’s. We all know what Hazard can do,” Campbell said, as quoted by Football Insider.
“If he could rekindle even a quarter of his best, he would be devastating for somebody.
“We have to remember that he carried Chelsea for a few years. Yes, he is not the same player now, but he can still deliver.”
He added, “Newcastle would be a good option. I think he would be a great signing for them at £17million. “How much is left in the tank? He has had a lot of injuries, so I am not sure. It might be worth the risk, though.”
