Arsene Wenger met Hazard's agent at his home

Speaking to BeIN Sports, Arsene Wenger said:

Yes, I wanted to take him, I had his agent at my home but again the barrier was financial and Chelsea made an effort that I couldn’t make.

He can be one of the players who grows into the Messi, Ronaldo stature if he continues to develop well.
