The 25-year-old Belgium international has joined Michael Laudrup's side in an 18-month loan deal from Osasuna with a view to a permanent move.
"I spoke to Hazard before making my decision. He said he thinks I will feel good here and I hope to play against him next week," said Lamah.
"He said Swansea is a good club to come to and it's very complicated to play against them.
"The last game I watched them play was against Chelsea. A 2-0 win is very good and it convinced me to sign.
"It has always been an ambition of mine to play in the Premier League, every player wants to play here. It's a good league with good players and great fans."
