Hazard catches the eye of Moratti

Inter are being linked with a move for Eden Hazard after Massimo Moratti hailed the Lille youngster.

Hazard, just 20, is making a name for himself in Ligue 1 and his ability has been noticed by the Nerazzurri chief.

Moratti is so impressed that he rates the Belgian talent more than Italy and Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi.

"Considering what our current policy is in the transfer market I think he is a better fit than Rossi," Moratti noted.

"Every time I go home one of my sons says to me 'remember Hazard, remember Harzard...'

"Rossi is really strong, but Hazard is even more surprising. I don't know if we have ever made contact for him, but he's a really interesting player."

Hazard, who has also won the praise of Juventus legend Zinedine Zidane, is contracted to Lille until 2015.

The attacking midfielder, who can also play out wide, joined his present club from Tubize in 2005.

He's already a full international for Belgium.
