Mikel Arteta has done a fine rebuilding job at the club this season and for his next upgrade, the Gunners boss is planning to revive the career of Hazard because he is surplus to Real Madrid’s need right now.
Even a few months back, Ancelotti seemingly had plans to use Hazard in the starting line up but his promise has not been physically repaid because the winger has played just 21 minutes in his previous seven appearances.
With how things are looking, he is of no use to Real Madrid which is why Arsenal are looking to capitalise on this situation by trying to land him on a bargain deal.
🚨 Arsenal have enquired about the signing of Eden Hazard.

Are Arsenal risking it by trying to sign Eden Hazard?
Eden Hazard was one of the best players in Europe when he was playing for Chelsea but his career graph has taken a nosedive as soon as he moved to Real Madrid.
He had scored 110 goals for Chelsea but with Madrid, the Belgian has netted only six goals in 65 games.
There’s no denying that the 31-year-old can still revive his career with Arsenal but his time at Madrid was spoiled due to injuries which is why we think signing him could be a massive risk from Mikel Arteta.

Eden Hazard has suffered numerous injury setbacks during his time in Spain and if he continues to have similar luck with the Gunners then Mikel Arteta will once again be stuck with a deadwood.
Arteta got rid of several useless players during the January transfer window so the last thing he will want is to bring onboard another such forward.
Eden Hazard has already fallen out of grace at Real Madrid so instead of trying to sign an injury-prone player, the Arsenal manager should focus on promoting young talents like Martinelli and Emile Smith Rowe as the left-sided attacker.
Yes, his experience could come really handy for the Gunners next season but it makes no sense to bring a degrading forward into the side and pay him a hefty salary just for the sake of signing a big-name player.
