Italian giants, AS Roma will be facing some stiff competition in their bid to sign Real Madrid attacker Lucas Vazquez in the coming winter transfer window in January, according to a report.
The Spanish attacker, who played mostly as a winger but can also be deployed as a midfielder, is reported to have fallen down the pecking order for manager Zinedine Zidane, as he has only been able to register 3 starts since the beginning of the La Liga season but has managed to find the back of the net once.
So far, Real Madrid’s overall performances have been quite poor. Experts in today’s football predictions noticed big problems in the squad of Zidane: Gareth Bale seems to be persona non grata which is causing trouble within the team.
Meanwhile, AS Roma have been understood to have made an offer for the 28-year-old winger along with English club Arsenal and German club Bayer Leverkusen ahead of the winter transfer window, according to Spanish outlet El Desmarque.
And for a deal to be struck with the Spanish giants for their winger, the reports claims, an offer starting in the region of €20 million will have to be made first.
The arrival of Eden Hazard from Chelsea and Vinicius Junior from Flamengo, who were both inserted to the team straightaway, put a dent on Vazquez’s chances in the starting eleven of Los Blancos.
Roma should be able to fight off competition in January to sign the Spain international, who is well known for his speed and dribbling abilities.
Vazquez would be an ideal signing for the Romans should they be able to pull it off as Paulo Fonseca looks to strengthen up his attack to pose a bigger threat in the Serie A.
The Romans currently sit sixth in the table with 13 points in 8 games – 9 points away from league leaders Juventus. Their next fixture is labelled as the Serie A football bet of the day when they host Milan. Experts predict a 1-1 draw, something both sides would unlikely to be happy with.
