Our Arsenal supporting locals have been chomping at the bit for virtually any rumour this season, due to their club’s inactivity in the transfer market.
Well, what a story to sink their teeth into. Good things come to those who wait, it seems.
According to Spanish outlet Fichajes, the North London giants will make a move for Real Madrid attacker Lucas Vasquez this summer.
The 24-year old has emerged as one of the most important rotation players in the Spanish capital this season, impressing with five goals and eight assists.
Still, amid the host of attacking talent and big names, the Spaniard has found it hard to command a regular starting berth.
A thrillingly incisive winger, the former Espanyol ace looks a natural fit at the Emirates on paper, while Bayern Munich are also believed to be monitoring his situation.
Carlo Ancelotti, who was in charge of Los Blancos while Vasquez was progressing through the youth ranks, is understood to view him as a long term heir to Franck Ribery.
The report suggests Arsenal would be willing to make a major financial effort to lure him to the English capital, as they look to improve their squad after another disappointing season.
