Barcelona considering move for Arsenal striker

Alexandre Lacazette news

Barcelona to swoop for Lacazette?

Barcelona have identified Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette as a potential summer target, according to Le10Sport.

The Frenchman has less than four months remaining on his contract, and there are no negotiations planned at the moment.

Gunner boss Mikel Arteta has said that discussions will be held during the off-season, but the striker could also leave for free.

Amidst this, it is now claimed that Barcelona are keeping tabs on him, and could make a contract offer in the near future.

Erling Haaland is obviously the prime target for the La Liga giants, but the Norwegian has been tipped to join Man City.

Hence, the club are looking at possible alternatives. Lacazette has grabbed their attention with his terrific link-up play.

The Frenchman has not scored much this campaign, but has brought the best out of the young players behind him lately.

Barcelona boss Xavi Hernandez is said to be impressed by those qualities as the club are building a similar young attack.
