Real Madrid defender Lucas Vazquez has been linked with a move to Hotspur this summer, leading to fans of the capital club reacting on Twitter to his potential signing. 

Injuries to conventional right-backs Dani Carvajal and Alvaro Odriozola have led to the versatile Vazquez being deployed at full-back for the majority of the campaign, but the 29-year-old has played a pivotal part for ’s side this season, bagging two goals and laying on seven assists for his teammates in 31 appearances

Despite the Los Blancos academy graduate, who has a market value of £13.5m, showcasing his importance to the side throughout the current campaign, the Madrid hierarchy have been unable to tie the Spain international down to a new contract, meaning Vazquez will be available on a free transfer in the summer.

According to the Daily Mirror (as cited by Mundo Deportivo), the reigning Spanish champions offered the utility man a three-year deal including a 10% wage cut, an offer Vazquez was unwilling to sign and has now instructed his representatives to find him a club in the Premier League, although Spurs fans weren’t too impressed with his potential arrival in north London.

“God I hope not, he is a very average footballer”

“We’re finished”

@domsougly

“Not for me. We need players in other positions first. Even then, we’re never going to push on with average. He’s average. Need to aim higher”

@SpursStark777

“He’s 30 this year and reportedly wants 160 k a week. No thank you”

@JgNabil

“Awful player. 29 too. No way this one happens.”

@SeanHalloran15

“Please no”

“More deadwood”

Spurs supporters may not need to fret too much, though, as the report also states that Vazquez is keen on signing for a side who can offer Champions League football, something they’re currently not in a position to do.
