Hodgson: Hazard will be great for Chelsea. I wanted him for Liverpool
"I also went to watch Hazard as a potential signing when I was coaching Liverpool so I know how good he is," said Hodgson.
"Every time he got the ball it seemed the crowd jumped to attention because they expected something to happen."
He continued: "Quite simply, what Hazard will bring to the Premier League is his talent.
"That is what Chelsea have invested in and I am sure now he will be looking forward of playing in the Premier League because it is one that is followed in each country."
