Arsenal have offered €35 million for Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez and the deal could be announced as early as next week if the British club and the player reach an agreement, according to a report from AS. The Spanish attacker would be very keen on a move to the Premier League club as he also wants to play in the 2020 UEFA Euro, something he might not achieve if he stays in Real Madrid being a reserve.

Lucas has also received interest from PSG, Bayern Munich and Inter, so his agents could use those rumors to force Arsenal to offer a good contract.

The truth is that Lucas Vazquez just doesn’t have room in Real Madrid’s squad anymore. He’s a hard worker but with the signing of Rodrygo and Eden Hazard it will be very hard for him to get minutes, given that he would also be behind Vinicius and Asensio in the rotation.

All in all, it would make a lot of sense to sell Lucas Vazquez this summer. He’s a solid and a useful player for Zinedine Zidane, but Madrid need money to sign a quality midfielder and have too many winger on their squad right now. If Arsenal’s offer is true, Real Madrid just have to pull the trigger and accept the deal.
