Tottenham should move for Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez

Tottenham Hotspur should look to bolster their flanks, and Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez would be an ideal signing.

Tottenham Hotspur should move for Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez in a bid to strengthen their wide options.

Spurs will be keen to add a winger to their current squad, particularly a right-sided one. Christian Eriksen deputised in the right-wing position towards the end of last season.

Despite doing a more than commendable job in this position, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will likely be looking to bring in a natural wide player, and Madrid's Vazquez would fit the bill perfectly.

The 26-year-old made 47 appearances in all competitions for Real Madrid last season, as the club won La Liga and became the first team to regain the Champions League. He scored four goals and notched up 12 assists.

However, the former Espanyol starlet played a rotational role at the Bernabeu and could be set to leave the Spanish capital. With the World Cup taking place next year, Vazquez will want to do all he can to secure his place in Spain's 2018 World Cup squad.

With Madrid being linked with a big money move Monaco sensation Kylian Mbappe, reports suggest Vazquez has said that he will leave the club if the move does go through (Daily Star).

Spurs do have Erik Lamela as an option, however the Argentinian has not made a first-team appearance since October and according to the Guardian, the 25-year-old is not likely to return until September.

It is highly unlikely that Pochettino will look to rely on his injury-prone compatriot, so a move for Vazquez would be a wise one, following links from the likes of the Star in the Spaniard's teammate Mateo Kovacic.

Vazquez will be looking to secure first-team football and he can get that in North London. After spending the last two seasons at Madrid, where he has won an abundant amount of silverware, his winning mentality and Champions League experience, will make him a welcome addition.
