Arsenal has stepped up their chase for Real Madrid star Lucas Vasquez in a bid to land him this January.

Vazquez has seen his playing time limited at the Santiago Bernabeu, he has only made just five La Liga starts this season under Zinedine Zidane.

Vazquez has been sparingly used this season and he has also been relegated to a bench role and Arsenal manager is offering him an escape route to join Arsenal.

The Spanish international could be a replacement for exit bound Alexis Sanchez who looks to quit the Emirate side for Manchester City or Better still Real Madrid this winter, Sanchez’s contract will expire next season and the Gunners will look to recoup some cash on him rather than him leaving as a free agent next summer.

And according to Spanish outlet Don Balon Wenger has stepped up his chase for the Spaniard and the Frenchman is reportedly “willing to do anything” to take the 26-year-old Arsenal.

Another report in Don Balon says that the Arsenal boss admires Vazquez’s speed and agility.

The Real Madrid forward is open to a move to the Premier League should the right offer come.

Mesut Ozil might also quit the Gunners at the end of the season with the likes of Barcelona and Manchester United all craving for his services.
