Chelsea Among Several Clubs Hoping To Land This Real Madrid Ace: Right Choice For Tuchel?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent print edition, Sport has mentioned that Chelsea are among several clubs hoping to land Real Madrid wide player Lucas Vazquez this summer. It has been reported that the Blues are willing to make the Spanish sensation a big offer and are even ready to sanction a signing-on bonus to lure him to Stamford Bridge when he becomes a free agent at the end of this campaign (transcripted and translated by Sport Witness).

Vazquez’s Solid Season At The Santiago Bernabeu Stadium

The 29-year-old has proven his value as a useful member of Zinedine Zidane’s squad and has done well to put in a series of impressive displays for Los Blancos this season. Vazquez has registered two goals and seven assists in 31 appearances for the Madrid giants this term across all fronts.

The Spaniard is primarily a right-sided winger, but Zidane has also used him as a full-back during this campaign. The Real Madrid academy graduate deserves a lot of credit for averaging 2.3 tackles, 0.8 interceptions, 0.9 clearances, 0.9 shots, 1.9 key passes and 1.4 dribbles per 90 minutes in La Liga and the UEFA Champions League so far (stats via whoscored).

With Vazquez set to become a free agent soon, it is no surprise that the Blues are prepared to offer him a big-money contract as he is good enough to earn a regular place in Thomas Tuchel’s first-team.

What Will The Spanish International Add To Tuchel’s Side?

Vazquez is blessed with good pace and is an outstanding dribbler with the ball at his feet. He has the potential to make some dangerous runs down the right-wing and can create some decent chances for others around him. The nine-time Spanish international can even contribute by scoring the odd goal and is proficient at working hard to help his teammates out at the back. Vazquez has won mostly everything that there is to win with Los Blancos thus far, so he could be tempted with the opportunity of becoming a Chelsea player this summer.

Is Vazquez The Right Choice For Chelsea?

The way the Spanish winger has been playing this season, it is safe to assume that he could become a consistent performer in Tuchel’s first-team week in week out. Some might say that Vazquez will be an upgrade over Reece James and Callum Hudson-Odoi for the right wing-back position at Stamford Bridge in the coming seasons because of his vast experience and winning mindset.

At 29, the Real Madrid player has still got a handful of years left in him to play at a high level. With all things considered, Vazquez will be a brilliant choice for the West London giants to consider this summer as he is available on a free transfer and would add a lot of quality and depth to Tuchel’s match-day squad.
