Tottenham officials contact Real Madrid over an exit-bound winger, while Everton want to sign a Manchester United full-back – all in the latest Euro Paper Talk.
SPURS EYE LUCAS VAZQUEZ
Tottenham officials have contacted Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane about their interest in winger Lucas Vazquez, according to a report.
Vazquez, who rejoined Madrid in 2015, has enjoyed a trophy-laden five years with the Spanish capital club.
The 29-year-old has picked up three Champions League winners’ medals and two LaLiga crowns. More recently, though, speculation has arisen about his future.
Previous reports suggested Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is keen to reunite with Vazquez, having worked with him while at Madrid and Vazquez was playing for the club’s reserve team.
Now, Defensa Central claims Spurs’ interest has increased. Officials from the club have contacted Zidane to make their interest known.
The source also claims Tottenham are willing to offer €16million (£14.6million) for Vazquez, which the officials mentioned in their conversation.
Speculation over the winger’s future has heightened given that he has entered the final year of his contract. Zidane has reportedly also told Vazquez that he has fallen down the pecking order behind Marco Asensio and Rodrygo.
As such, his future at the Santiago Bernabeu is not guaranteed beyond the next few months.
Nevertheless, Vazquez allegedly told Zidane in response: “If you want me to stay, I am delighted to help and play where necessary”.
Vazquez only made 22 appearances this season, his progress hampered by a toe injury. What’s more, the winger struggled to get regular starts under Zidane.
