ARSENAL are considering a shock move for Real Madrid star Eden Hazard, according to reports.
The former Chelsea winger is supposedly holding showdown talks over his future with the LaLiga side open to letting him leave.
And he could have a surprise offer from the Gunners as they look to bolster their squad for the title race.
Outlet Mediafoot claims that Hazard could go to Arsenal if their proposed transfer for Shakhtar Donetsk's Mykhailo Mudryk doesn't materialise amid competition from Chelsea.
Reports suggest that initial contact between Mikel Arteta's side and representatives in the Spanish capital has been made.
Hazard's contract expires at the end of the next season and there has supposedly been interest from MLS teams, Fenerbahce and Al-Nassr.

Hazard was even recently mocked by a fourth-division player in the Copa del Rey as he was hooked off by boss Carlo Ancelotti in the 67th minute.
