However, if these tweets are anything to go by, Arsenal’s chase of Spanish winger Lucas Vazquez, following reports in Spain, would not represent that quality.
Real Madrid-based news outlet Defensa Central claims that The Gunners have made an attempt to sign the 28-year-old from the Spanish giants for €30m (£26.9m), with Zinedine Zidane holding out for €40m (£35.9m).
And while some Arsenal fans don’t rate their chances of pulling a transfer of that size off in any case, others seemed to be desperate that the links to the £22.5m-rated attacker turn out to be false.
Although he has won three Champions Leagues and a La Liga title during his time at the Bernabeu, it looks as if his cup-winning pedigree has not enhanced his reputation amongst supporters – with quite a few in North London clearly not rating him – and despite the report claiming he is up for sale at Real Madrid, these fans certainly don’t want to be welcoming Vazquez to the Emirates any time soon – at any price:

Why? Carasco is far better! And a better goal threat

Fireable offense. Watch Ceballos go to Spurs.
