Arsenal and Liverpool have taken their rivalry off-pitch as they battle for the signature of Spain international and Real Madrid winger Lucas Vasquez, according to reports.
Both Clubs have been unable to match the spending power of Chelsea, Man United and Man City but they have been heavily involved in this transfer window and they are keen on bolstering their squad.
Liverpool broke their transfer record to sign on Egyptian attacker Mohamed Salah from Roma and he was joined by former Chelsea star Dominic Solanke on a free transfer.
The Reds have been linked with Arsenal’s winger Alex Oxlade Chamberlain but the Gunners are unwilling to listen to offers for the most versatile player
Meanwhile, Arsenal have had their own fair share of success in the window with deals already sealed for Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac but Wenger is poised to strengthen his otherwise strong squad.
Lucas Vasquez has been a bit-part player in the team of Los Blancos as it is given that he is behind Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, and Karim Benzema in the selection pecking order. His best bet at playing regularly is away from Santiago Bernabeu.
Liverpool and Arsenal have made inquiries over the availability of the player and they are keen on snapping him up, per Diario Madridista. Serie A runners up Roma are understood to be interested too.
Vasquez is a product of Real Madrid’s academy and has scored eight goals from 83 games since making his debut in 2015.
