Thiago Silva urges Chelsea's Hazard to join PSG

Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva says the French giants would welcome Eden Hazard with open arms.

The Chelsea ace, who scored a hat-trick in the 3-0 win over Newcastle United on Saturday, emerged as a target for PSG during the winter transfer window.

It has been suggested that the Ligue 1 champions may lodge a big-money bid for Hazard in the summer and that mooted move has been backed by Brazilian centre-back Silva.

"It's normal to ask ourselves if a player can make us stronger," he told L'Equipe.

"I would welcome [Hazard] with open arms, like we did with all our recruits.

"We need players like him to achieve our project and win everything. He is so strong tactically and technically. All the great players are welcome in Paris."
