Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has already seen Cesc Fabregas leave the club this month, and now Samir Nasri is on the brink of a move to Manchester City.

The loss of two star midfielders leaves the Gunners looking short of creativity in midfield – they have scored one goal in three matches this season – and increases the pressure on Wenger to buy.

He is known to be an admirer of 20-year-old Hazard who is, alongside new Chelsea signing Romelu Lukaku, considered to represent the future of Belgian football. But Lille say they will not consider any offer for Hazard, no matter what size.

“Eden will not be leaving this season,” said Paquet. “We are aware of interest from some of the biggest clubs in Europe but we are not prepared to sell. He is very happy here; he understands our project and wants to stay for at least another year.”

On Tuesday Wenger claimed he feels no pressure to replace Nasri and Fabregas, because he has already purchased Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Gervinho this summer.
