Arsenal steal a march on rivals after talks over free transfer

Arsenal are claimed to have held talks with Lucas Vazquez‘s representatives over a possible free transfer from Real Madrid this summer.

The winger is set to become a free agent at the end of the season unless a new deal can be thrashed out with his current club, which appears unlikely at present.

A host of clubs are likely to try their hand in convincing the 29 year-old to join them, especially given that he will not command a transfer fee, but it is Arsenal who are claimed to have held talks over a potential move already.

Caught Offside’s Leah Smith claimed that talks took place ‘recently’, while other PL clubs along with both PSG and Bayern Munich as having talks with the Real star.

The Express also claims that Leah ‘understands’ that Manchester United have also scheduled talks with Vazquez within the next fortnight.

Arsenal have reasonably good relations with Real, having agreed three loan deals for Dani Ceballos twice and Martin Odegaard once inside the last two campaigns, but that will count for nothing as they do not need to sign off with the Spanish giants due to his contract situation.

Would Vazquez be a regular in the Arsenal first-team? Does he appear suited to the Premier League?

  1. Obviously I don’t mind if our club pursued players out of contract, so there wouldn’t be a transfer fee to negotiate, but if we look to entice players by offering overinflated wages and unwarranted assurances regarding minutes, then it would be an unwise course of action

    there’s no doubt we need to be inventive when it comes to player acquisitions, but I would rather we do so through the reimaging of our scouting division, which was wrongly dismantled in the off-season even though our scheming owner was secretly expecting quite a financial windfall through the now-defunct Super League…what a total weasel move

  2. hes a decent right back for a free transfer signing

    at 29yo can be a good squad player or first choice

  3. Arsenal really dont need another winger. They already are suffering after the last free transfer from Chelsea. There is a reason Madrid are letting him go, just like Chelsea let go off Willian. Not another pensioner at Arsenal.

    1. Chelsea did not let go of Willian. Willian refused to extend his deal as he wanted a 3yr deal and was offered a 2yr deal.

  4. No, hitting 30 in the summer, have a long term injury, huge wage, a right winger mainly (with right foot), not sure he is good defensively.
    I would play Chambers over him in the right back, and in a Winger place, I would play Saka.
    So he won’t improve our starting 11, …for backup, he would be good if fit.
