Arsenal prepare Madrid double swoop
According to 'El Desmarque', Arsenal are serious about signing Lucas Vázquez and will pay the 40 million Euros that Madrid want for the winger. The Spaniard has been a useful utility player at the Bernabéu, but the wave of new signings in attack has forced him towards the exit door.
At the same time, the Spanish press are reporting that the Madrid academy product is not the only Real target for Emery, with the Spanish manager also lining up a 20 million Euro offer to bring in striker Mariano Díaz.
The arrivals of Eden Hazard, Rodrygo and Luka Jovic have ended up overpopulating a Madrid front-line that already boasted the likes of Vinicius, Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio. The vast number of options and the urgency to bring in money has put an end to the futures of Vázquez and Mariano in the Spanish capital, with 'The Gunners' ready to take advantage.
