Arsenal are prepared to pay around £35.5M (€40M) in order to bring Spanish international and Real Madrid star Lucas Vazquez to the Emirates this summer.
This is according to Don Balon, who are noting that the north London club are very keen to sign the winger this transfer window, and that they are willing to fork out the aforementioned sum to do so.
The report also states that Vazquez is highly-rated by former Spain boss Julen Lopetegui, and that the Real manager sees Vazquez is going to play a big role in Lopetegui’s plans this season at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Despite not starting many games for Los Blancos last season, Vazquez still managed to make his mark for the Spanish giants.
The 27-year-old clocked up a total of eight goals and 16 assists in 53 appearances for the club, helping them win a historic third-consecutive Champions League title.
With Cristiano Ronaldo now gone, Vazquez may very well find himself getting some more game time at Real next season, especially with him reportedly set to play a key role in Lopetegui’s plans.
Now, only time will tell if Arsenal manage to snag a deal for Vazquez and bring him to north London, although at this point, that doesn’t look very likely.
