Arsenal have submitted a £35.6m bid for Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez, according to reports.
The Spanish winger has had mixed experience at Santiago Bernabeu due to his reduced playing time and could well leave to get more first team experience, if reports in TeamTalk are anything to go by.
Vazquez’s limited playing time at Real Madrid has also transcended to his involvement in the Spanish National time and could fancy a move away from the Bernabeu to gain more first team experience.
Although, it is understood that Madrid’s new boss, Julen Lopetegui is determined to hold on to his players following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo from the team.
Arsenal, on the other hand, have been busy in the transfer market as new boss Unai Emery prepares for his first season in the Premier League, signing five players so far this summer and could still bring in more if they are able to offload some deadwood.
Reports in Don Balon claim that Arsenal transfer chiefs have now tabled a £35.6 million offer for Lucas Vazquez and hope Real Madrid will part with the winger, who has shown patches of brilliance when called upon.
It is understood that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez who has the final say of the transfer, will also baulk at the idea of losing an attacker as they prepare for life after Cristiano Ronaldo.
