Juventus offer winger in exchange for Lacazette

Arsenal have been offered the chance to sign Juventus winger Federico Bernardeschi in a part-exchange deal for Alexandre Lacazette this summer.

Lacazette had an average 2019/2020 season with the club and he managed only 12 goals over the course of the entire campaign.

He was able to impress with his workrate under Mikel Arteta during the backend of the season, but reports suggest that he could still be sold.

According to Calciomercato, he is attracting interest from Juventus, who are aiming to find a replacement for Gonzalo Higuain this summer.

The Gunners want at least £30m to part ways with Lacazette, but the Bianconeri are aiming to negotiate a lesser fee by offering a player.

Bernardeschi could be included as a makeweight to sign the Frenchman, but it is unclear whether the Gunners will be tempted by the proposal.

Lacazette has under two years remaining on his contract with the club, and talks over an extension have stalled for the moment.
