Everton: Toffees reportedly interested in Lucas Vazquez

Everton: Toffees reportedly interested in Lucas Vazquez -Everton News

Everton are among the clubs interested in signing Real Madrid’s Lucas Vazquez, according to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo.

The 29-year-old winger is out of contract at the end of season and multiple clubs are said to be competing to sign him on a free transfer. Napoli, AC Milan, Arsenal and Spurs are also apparently in the race for his signature.

Real Madrid have offered the Spanish international a new contract but he seemingly does not intend to extend his stay at Los Blancos.

What does Vazquez have to offer?

Vazquez joined the club as a teenager and has gone on to make 237 appearances, scoring 26 goals and assisting 53 in that time.

A three-time Champions League winner, he has featured in the Spain squad for their last two major international tournaments.

This season, he has demonstrated his versatility by operating predominantly as a right-back. He is averaging 2.3 tackles, 1.5 dribbles and 1.9 key passes per game (via WhoScored) and clearly possesses a rounded skillset.

Transfer Tavern verdict

Can Everton lure Vazquez to Goodison Park? There are probably three key factors at play.

First, can they offer him European football? They’re currently two points off the Europa League places with a game in hand.

Second, can they offer him consistent starts? That’s unclear, given that Seamus Coleman and James Rodriguez are options in his preferred positions.

And finally, can the Toffees pay his wages? According to Sportekz, he’s earning £115,000 per week in Madrid. That’s steep, but not beyond the realms of feasibility – there are currently six players on £100,000 or more every week, three of whom are taking home more than Vazquez’s wage (Spotrac).

In other news, many fans react to this stunning statistic about an Everton defender.
