Juventus want Lacazette in part-exchange deal

Juventus are keen on signing Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette in a potential player-plus-cash deal this summer, a report from Calciomercato claims.



Lacazette has been with the Gunners for three seasons, but the most recent one was disappointing with just 12 goals scored over the course of the campaign.

Hence, the north London side are prepared to listen to offers of around £30m, but the Bianconeri are aiming to negotiate a part-exchange deal to lower the fee.

The Serie A giants are aware that the Gunners want to add a new centre-back to the squad and they are willing to offer either Daniele Rugani or Cristian Romero as a makeweight for Lacazette.

It remains to be seen whether the Gunners are tempted by the proposal. Mikel Arteta has identified Lille's Gabriel as the prime target to bolster the heart of the defence, but there is plenty of competition for him.

The Brazilian is currently the subject of interest from Napoli, Manchester United and Everton alongside the Gunners. Lille have set an asking price of £27m for his services.
