Liverpool interested in signing technically-gifted Spanish international

REAL MADRID winger Lucas Vazquez is reportedly attracting interest from Liverpool and Arsenal.

Vazquez, 26, made just 12 La Liga starts under Zinedine Zidane last season as Real Madrid beat Barcelona to the title.

He did feature for Los Blancos in their 3-0 win over Deportivo La Coruna on the opening day of the new season, but only made a 10 minute cameo appearance.

The Spain international has fallen down the pecking order at Real Madrid following the rise of Marco Asensio and Isco.

Vazquez is in need of regular first-team football which Zidane cannot guarantee.

Spanish outlet Don Balon say this has attracted interest from the Premier League, with Liverpooland Arsenal made aware of his situation.

It is said the duo are chasing Vazquez as they look to bolster their ranks before the transfer window closes on August 31.

Jurgen Klopp is supposedly an admirer of Vazquez and would be keen on bringing him to Anfield.

While Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is open to signing him as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez, who has been heavily linked with the exit door at the Emirates.

The Chile international is after a bumper pay rise to stay in north London, but admitted last month that he wants to play for a club who is in the Champions League.

Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are said to be keen on securing a deal for him.

And should this happen Vazquez could be on his way to Arsenal.

Don Balon add Vazquez wants to stay in Madrid, but he is worried about the lack of game time under Zidane.
