Arsenal are keen on a move to sign Lucas Vazquez from Real Madrid this summer, according to reports in the Spanish media.

Spanish newspaper Marca is reporting that the north London side are one of a number of clubs interested in landing the 27-year-old Spain international this summer.

The same story says that both Liverpool FC and AC Milan are among the other clubs keen on signing Vazquez this summer, but Arsenal also hold a strong interest.

The article claims that new Gunners manager Unai Emery is “in love” with Vazquez’s direct style of play, but the north London side could face some serious competition for his signature.

It is also reported that the player himself is currently happy at Real Madrid, despite the murmurings linking him with a move away from the Spanish club.

Arsenal are believed to still be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Emery looks to build a team at least capable of breaking back into the top four next season.

The Gunners ended up in sixth place in the table last term in Arsene Wenger’s final campaign in charge, as they missed out on qualification for the Champions League.
