Arsenal were said to be leading the race for Real Madrid right winger Lucas Vazquez by many transfer media podcast last month.
Some reporters even went further to claim the Gunners have launched a surprise £45m offer the Galacticos for the Spaniard’s signature.
However, all of the previous reports appear to be mere speculations as MARCA, who were quoted by Sportwitness claim the Gunners haven’t made any official approach towards getting the right-winger this summer.
The Spanish media source claim that Unai Emery and his employers aren’t financially buoyant to make huge transfer bid for the want-away star.
Vazquez has been a loyal to Los Blancos since 2015, but his time at Santiago Bernabeu is as good as over after the La Liga giants officially captured Eden Hazard and Rodrygo’s signature.
However, Marca didn’t rule out the possibility of seeing Arsenal make an official move for the Spaniard before the end of the ongoing transfer window as Emery is in dire need of a good winger.
Though the Gunners are still actively involved in the race for Crystal Palace’s winger Wilfred Zaha, it won’t be too much to see Vazquez at Emirates Stadium next season.
When on fine form, Vazquez can wreck havoc to any defender in the world. His addition to Emery’s squad will definitely increase the rate of competition among Arsenal wingers and that will make other wingers up their games throughout next season.
