Arsenal and Tottenham have reportedly been asked if they’d like to sign Real Madrid’s Lucas Vasquez this summer.
Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move for Vazquez in the past, although there has been little of substance for the last two years.
Yet here we are again.
According to a report in the Sunday Mirror, Real Madrid approached both North London sides to ask of they fancied putting their hands in their pockets for a player they can’t get to sign a new deal.
Vaquez is out of contract in the summer and despite a number of meetings, the Spaniards have been unable to get him to agree a new deal because the player has no interest in seeing his £115kpw wages reduced by 10%.
The player is said to be keen on joining up with Jose Mourinho, although how long he’ll be at Spurs for is anyone’s guess.
Vazquez, as you can read above, wants a four-year deal (Real Madrid were only offering three) with a Champions League club which you would think would rule Arsenal out.
