Transfer News: Mousa Dembele has backed Eden Hazard, who has appeared to turn down Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United to join Chelsea, to be a success in the Premier League

Fulham star Mousa Dembele believes that Eden Hazard will be a success in the Premier League.

Hazard, who had been linked with Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United, revealed on Twitter that he would be moving to Chelsea and his international team-mate backs him to be a success.

“It’s a good choice from Eden,” said Dembele.

“He has the quality to succeed in every competition in Europe but the English competition is the best in the world so it will be good for his development.

“Eden is quite small, but in the last couple of years more small players have arrived in the Premier League like Silva, Mata and before that Modric - and Hazard can certainly be like them.

“I think he will need a little time to adapt but it won’t take long.’’
