Atletico Madrid to discuss part-exchange deal for Arsenal star


Alexandre Lacazette news

Lacazette wanted by Atletico

Atletico Madrid are prepared to offer Arsenal a choice of three players as they aim to sign Alexandre Lacazette in a part-exchange deal.

Lacazette had an average third season with the Gunners last term and he bagged only 12 goals over the course of the entire campaign.

He was in and out of the starting lineup on a number of occasions under Mikel Arteta and it appears that the club are open to his departure.

According to Marca, Atleti are aiming to revive their long-term interest in Lacazette, but they are unlikely to afford a straight-cash move.

Instead, they are willing to offer one of Thomas Lemar, Vitolo or Angel Correa as a makeweight to sign the France international this summer.

Lacazette has under two years remaining on his contract with the north London side and talks over an extension have completely stalled.

Meanwhile, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is set to sign a three-year contract with the club and he could shift from the left wing position to lead the line next term.
