Tottenham are reportedly close to signing Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 28-year-old, who has struggled for chances at the Bernabeu this season, is valued at £22.5million, but Spurs could pay as little as £16m – with Vazquez’s current contract expiring at the end of next season.
Vazquez was playing for Real Madrid Castilla – Madrid’s reserve team – whilst Jose Mourinho was in charge of the La Liga giants between 2010 and 2013 and the Spurs boss is eager to link-up with the Spaniard once again, having watched him develop as a youngster.
Having made just 18 appearances for Madrid this season – scoring just three times – Vazquez is clearly looking for more regular first-team football – something Tottenham would be able to offer, as long as were to offload one of Erik Lamela or Lucas Moura.
Injuries have played some part in Vazquez’s lack of opportunities this term, however, missing 15 matches in total with toe and calf problems, and hasn’t featured in any of Madrid’s four games since the resumption of Spanish football due to another issue with his calf.
