Arsenal are battling with two other clubs for the signature of Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez, according to reports.
Wenger is in the market for a new winger and has been pursuing a deal for Monaco’s Thomas Lemar since the beginning of the transfer window. However, the French giants continue to play hard-ball, insisting they won’t sell Lemar.
According to the OK Diario via the Daily Cannon, Wenger is now considering a move for alternative targets, after being frustrated with Monaco’s hard-ball stance on Lemar.
Mahrez is another name under serious consideration but it is believed Vazquez will cost a lot less than Lemar and Mahrez.
Vazquez is reportedly considering his situation at the Bernabeu because he wants to play regularly next season. The competition for places at the Bernabeu would make it difficult for him to play regularly and he may have to ask for a move elsewhere.
Should that be the case, Arsenal will have to fight off competition for his signature from Liverpool and AS Roma.
Klopp is a big admirer of Vazquez and could swoop for him should he become available. AS Roma are in the market for a new winger after selling Salah to Liverpool and sees Vazquez as an interesting option.
