Mousa Dembele believes that Eden Hazard, who reportedly turned down Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham to sign for Chelsea, will be enjoyed in England

Fulham star Mousa Dembele has backed Eden Hazard, who is set to sign for Chelsea, to be a success in the Premier League.

The Whites playmaker also believes that his Lille counterpart is the jewel in the Belgium crown at the moment.

“We have a lot of good players, with [Vincent] Kompany, [Marouane] Fellaini, [Thomas] Vermaelen, Gries Mertens,” Dembele said.

“But Hazard is a player who is unbelievable.

“He can make from nothing a big chance or a goal.

“He scores, he gives good passes, he’s very fast, he has good skills, good free-kicks - a confidence player.

“He has a bit of everything.

“I know him well and I think he will do very good in the Premier League.

“It’s a good competition for him and I think that England will enjoy him.”
