Tottenham Hotspur showed interest in signing Lucas Vázquez last summer, but he decided to continue at Real Madrid.

The 29-year-old’s contract will expire at the end of the season and his situation at the Spanish capital club has alerted Premier League sides.

This includes Spurs and Arsenal and on March 22nd, Mundo Deportivo reported José Mourinho’s side have an advantage over their north London rivals in the transfer chase.

Sport now explain Tottenham are in the picture to sign the versatile player, who earns €3.5m net per season at Real Madrid.

With Zinedine Zidane keen on retaining the player, Los Blancos offered him a three-year contract with a reduction of 10 percent on his current salary.

Vázquez is not ready to accept these conditions and therefore, has made the decision ‘not to renew’ his contract. His future seems to be ‘far away’ from Real Madrid.  

Tottenham are ‘willing to improve’ his wages, if he decides to join them in the next market. Since Zidane’s man will be available as a free agent, he’d also get a ‘transfer bonus’.

Tottenham, however, will have to beat competition from Bayern Munich as they have ‘taken the lead’.

The newspaper claims the Bundesliga side are ready to propose a four-year contract with an improved salary.
