Liverpool Face Stick Or Twist Decision Over €20m Explosive Winger Recruit

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has confirmed his interest in highly rated Lille winger Eden Hazard, a known target for Liverpool reports

The 20-year-old Belgian international has been consistently linked with a move away from the Ligue 1 side this summer.

Reds boss Kenny Dalglish is known to be in the market for wide midfield additions to strengthen his Anfield squad, and had reportedly earmarked Hazard as the man to provide more firepower for Liverpool's newfound strike partnership of Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez.

Known for his creativity, speed and technical ability, Hazard is best described as a fearless and explosive attacking midfielder who can change a game at the turn of a hat.

Attributes that have attracted both Liverpool and Inter Milan to the €20million rated starlet.

"We are not in negotiations about Hazard, but he is definitely an interesting player for us. My son always tells me that we should make a move for him" confirmed Moratti in an interview with Gazetta dello Sport.

"When we're talking about our current transfer market targets, Hazard would be more in line with our policy."

Anfield owners Fenway Sports Group are thought to have pledged a transfer war chest in the region of £50 million to the Liverpool boss as the Scot looks to make significant signings in the summer.

The Merseyside club now faces a stick or twist situation, as they are forced to consider how serious they are in their pursuit of Hazard after recent developments linking the Serie A side with an imminent offer.

Alongside Damien Comolli, director of football, Dalglish is thought to have a number of targets in a string of positions and it promises to be a busy summer for Liverpool.
