Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly joined the race to sign Real Madrid flyer Lucas Vazquez this summer with Leeds United and Everton also being linked – and Spurs fans have discussed a potential move for the Spain international.
Vazquez, 29, is available on a free transfer this summer. Despite remaining a crucial part of Zinedine Zidane’s side this season after being converted into a right-back, playing 26 times in all competitions, Vazquez’s future is still up in the air.
The Daily Star (28/02, p45) have claimed that Real Madrid have offered Vazquez a new deal to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu, but after 232 appearances for the Galacticos – he is set to leave. The report claims Tottenham are considering a move for Vazquez.
However, they might not be the only Premier League club interested in the nine-time Spain star. Indeed, Spanish outlet Cuatro claimed in February that Leeds and Everton are keen – with the Whites ready to offer Vazquez a pay rise, to £83,000 a week.
Tottenham fans have reacted on Twitter to the reported news that their club could look to bring Vazquez to North London in a move that would see them sign a third player from Real Madrid in two years – after Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon.
Huge improvement on doherty

Great right wing/ full back, I’d prefer Ramos we require a CB but I can’t see RM letting Sergio leave anytime soon https://t.co/sKZ0h715Zq

Is this the Vazquez I see getting clowned on this platform weekly? Looks like a very good footballer to me. No wonder Zidane likes him so much

That's Levy's favourite type of signing…

True because he would be free! To be honest if we sell Lamela in summer I wouldn't mind him on a free transfer. But we need to prioritize the defense more than anything.
