Roma are shopping in Spain, but have been turned down for an attacking midfielder they wanted in case Riyad Mahrez.
The Giallorossi have offered €30 million to Real Madrid for Lucas Vazquez – also linked to Newcastle recently – according to the latest reports, but that the Galacticos have rejected the bid out of hand.
Radio Marca confirm that the Lupi – whose sporting director is Spanish wizard Monchi – have thrown their hat in the ring for the young attacking midfielder.
Well, he’s getting older: at 26, Vazquez wants to be a regular starter, but was only in the first XI on twelve occasions in Liga action last season.
Though he managed an impressive two goals and seven assists, things aren’t going to get any easier.
Isco is still in Madrid and improving, while Gareth Bale doesn’t look like he is going anywhere. With Marcos Asensio a threat and new signing Dani Ceballos arriving, the Merengues’ midfield is getting a little crammed.
