Having added two signings to the club – one being a goalkeeper (Bernd Leno) and a defender (Stefan Lichtsteiner) – to strengthen up the team at the back. Now the Gunners might just be on their way to add more to their attack for an impressive performance next season. This special is brought to you in collaboration with the experts of FootballPredictions.com.
According to the latest reports going on the media, Arsenal are being linked to Spanish and Real Madrid superstar Lucas Vazquez.
The reports, coming from a Spanish outlet OK Diario claiming that the Premier League outfit have made a very tempting move to come in terms with the Spanish attacker offering him a salary much higher to what he currently earns at Santiago Bernabeu.
The 26-year-old, who currently earns over €3million-a-year with the Los Blancos, will be set to make a decision on his future as Arsenal already tabling an offer which will see him earn €8million-a-year at the Emirates Stadium should he sign for the North Londoners this summer, according to the reports.
However, with Zinedine Zidane in charge of management of the Los Blancos team last season, Lucas Vazquez was only able to make 19 La Liga starts for Madrid.
And with the team still having its top attackers upfront with Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Isco, the 26-year-old should be set to get more reduced in games next season should he stay at the Bernabeu this summer.
Vazquez, who can be either deployed on both sides on the wing, has a release clause of €150 million but reports claims that the Champions League winners will let him depart with the club should an offer worth €50million gets tabled to them.
Arsenal should be giving all they have to sign Vazquez if they really are looking to make a powerful statement upfront in the Domestic League and in Europe next season.
The Spanish attacker made 53 appearances for the Los Blancos last campaign putting to back of the net eight goals and further created 16 assists and could be on his way to the Emirates Stadium should Arsenal new manager Unai Emery becomes desperate to land him. The latest Premier League predictions are already showing positive responses to a possible transfer for Lucas Vazquez to London.
