Lucas Vazquez will sign for Liverpool this summer after being persuaded by the Anfield club to sign, according to a report.
The Real Madrid man has been linked with a summer move to Liverpool, although he was apparently not keen on uprooting from Madrid to England.
Now Don Balon report that the 26-year-old has been given added motivation to sign for Jurgen Klopp’s men.
The Spanish source say Liverpool have promised to up Vazquez’s current salary of around £85,000 a week and assured him of an important role in Klopp’s XI.
Vazquez has failed to establish himself as a regular under Zinedine Zidane this season, but he has scored eight goals and claimed 16 assists in 51 games.
Just 16 starts in La Liga have persuaded the former Espanyol man that this summer, despite being under contract until 2021, might be the time to move on.
The same source claims Real could use Vazquez as bait to land a deal for Liverpool’s goalscoring sensation Mohamed Salah.
Perez could also throw Costa Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas into the deal in a bid to lower Liverpool’s asking price for Salah.
In March Vazquez revealed he was happy in Madrid, but if Perez wants to offload the midfielder then the Coruna-born player will be staring at the exit door.
“I’m very happy at Real Madrid, this is the team that made me the player I am today and I hope I can stay here for many years. I’m playing the best football since I arrived at Madrid and I’m contributing to the team while also getting good results,” said Vazquez in an interview with Onda Cero.
