With just one year left on his contract at Borussia Park, the Belgium international looks set to leave the Bundesliga club this summer after apparently informing his current employers that he wants to try his hand elsewhere.
DH claimed on Monday that Liverpool have made an offer to reunite Hazard with his older brother Eden in the Premier League, the 26-year-old having contributed 12 goals and 11 assists in all competitions this season.
Speaking to Sky, Eberl has confirmed that Hazard junior has made it clear that he wants a new challenge and has name-dropped Liverpool when discussing the clubs he could end up at.
"Thorgan has informed us that he doesn't want to extend his contract and that he wants to leave the club in the summer to take the next step,” Eberl said. "That's the way it is for us.
"We'll have to see where his path will continue. I don't know whether it will be at Dortmund, who are constantly being mentioned, or at Atlético Madrid, Liverpool or another club."
Interestingly, Het Nieuwsblad claimed earlier in the week that Dortmund have offered around £34 million to bring Hazard to the Signal Iduna Park, a fee that is apparently smaller than the bid made by Liverpool.
But Hazard would apparently prefer to join the Bundesliga title-chasers as he feels he would play more regularly under Lucian Favre than under Jurgen Klopp.
