Arsenal want to sign Real Madrid star following Eden Hazard’s arrival

Arsenal are reportedly in contention to secure the signature of Lucas Vazquez, who could struggle for gametime after the arrival of Eden Hazard at the Bernabeu.

The Gunners are actively looking to strengthen their options in the wider attacking department and they have been linked with Ryan Fraser and Yannick Carrasco in recent weeks.

However, according to Mundo Deportivo, the north London giants are weighing up a move for Vazquez, who could find himself struggling for regular first-team football next term.

The Spaniard has found himself regularly featuring off the bench during his time at the Bernabeu and the arrival of Hazard is unlikely to help improve his situation.

Aside from Arsenal, arch-rivals Liverpool are also in the running to sign the versatile winger but the Gunners may have the advantage with the assurance of a starting role which won’t be the case at Anfield.

Vazquez has not been a flourishing goalscorer during his career and he has yet to reach double figures in terms of the goal tally for a single league campaign.

Still, he has proved a quality player with his assist-making and good defensive attributes from a wide attacking role and that seemingly fits into the scheme of things under Unai Emery, who often demands a high workrate.
