Transfer news: Benoit Assou-Ekotto thinks Tottenham should sign Eden Hazard

Tottenham defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto believes Eden Hazard would be a hit at White Hart Lane should he join the north London club.

The Lille playmaker has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs after admitting that he would be keen for a move to England.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp described Hazard as 'an exceptional talent', saying chairman Daniel Levy would be willing to make a big offer for the 21-year-old.

Former team-mate Yohan Cabaye said Hazard would be best suited to Arsenal, however Assou-Ekotto believes the Belgian would fit in well at Spurs.

"He can succeed. He has the talent to," Assou-Ekotto told French radio station RMC.

"If he can help us, why not? He is speaking French, it will be easier to communicate."
