EPL: Eden Hazard good option for Newcastle – Former Gunners Campbell

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.”
