Newcastle United playmaker Yohan Cabaye has told former Lille teammate Eden Hazard to choose Arsenal over Tottenham.

Both North London rivals are chasing the Belgian.

"Eden and England would go very well together," Cabaye told L'Equipe. "Tottenham is a good club even if, right now, there are some troubles with the coach. Arsenal, it would be really good.

"Lille is quite similar to both in terms of game or mind. After, I do not know if he is in touch with Arsenal but I think it would be the right club for him."
