Arsenal have placed a lot of focus on their defensive ranks so far this summer, signing Stephan Lichtsteiner and Bernd Leno while reported deals for Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Lucas Torreira are said to be on the verge of completion.

The Gunners now look set to switch their focus towards more attacking additions, as they seek to find a long-term replacement for Alexis Sanchez following his transfer to Manchester United in January, and Unai Emery has identified his ideal target.

Spanish outlet Marca state the former Paris Saint-Germain coach is a huge admirer of Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez, though he will face competition in the market from the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and AC Milan.

The Italian side’s one-year absence from European football likely rules them out of the running, handing the Premier League trio a huge boost, although Lucas is said to be happy in Madrid after becoming a crucial part of Zinedine Zidane’s squad last season.
