Arsenal have apparently made an offer to sign Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez, which the player is said to now be considering.
According to ABC, the Spaniard has a proposal from the Gunners, who have lodged a bid of €33 million/£30 million (plus €5/£4 million in bonus payments).
Apparently Unai Emery believes the player would fit into his system well, with the 28-year-old able to operate as a winger or a wing-back.
Vazquez’s future at the Bernabeu is currently uncertain, with the club having signed Eden Hazard and Rodrygo this summer.
The star is highly regarded by Zinedine Zidane, but his opportunities could be much more limited if he stays around for next season.
Vazquez is a good player but Arsenal would be overpaying if there’s any truth in the £34 million offer.
With a shoestring budget, Arsenal should surely be pursuing cheaper alternatives such as Bournemouth livewire Ryan Fraser, who only has a year left on his contract.
£34 million is big money and the club would expect to be signing a top quality player.
Given his position in the pecking order at the Bernabeu, the offer seems a little steep.
