Former Chelsea star Eden Hazard “would love” playing for Newcastle United in charge of the new-appointed coach Eddie Howe, that’s according to former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere.

Hazard has been recently linked with the move to St. James’ Park, while Wilshere, who has spent the 2016/17 season on loan at Bournemouth under Howe, has opened up on the manager and the Blues’ man’s possible transfer.

“He was great with me (at Bournemouth),” Wilshere told talkSPORT.

“Because it was tough for me there because I was coming from a big club.

“I stepped into a group that had been together since they were in League One, they were all friends. They were all great with me, but Eddie made sure they were. He was great with me.

“Eden Hazard is another level, but I think Eden would love playing for a manager like Eddie Howe (at Newcastle). He’s the type of manager you want to play for.”

He added: “I worked with him at a club that I see now are quite similar to Newcastle – not in terms of the size of the club, but in terms of the players.

“Newcastle have got a few ex-Bournemouth players and that is what Eddie does, he gets the best out of those types of players, gets them going and he gets the fans on side.

“He’s a great manager. I think he deserves a chance. If he goes in and does really well, in a few years they could be pushing the top six, which I think he can do.”
