Juventus want to offer Arsenal player swap to sign Alexandre Lacazette

Juventus are intensifying their interest in Alexandre Lacazette. Several reports from France claim that the Bianconeri have made contact with Arsenal to ask them about the availability of the forward. It is believed that Juventus are willing to offer a full cash deal, but are also opting for a player swap.

The report claims that Arsenal will be offered Adrien Rabiot as part of the deal. The French midfielder joined Juventus on a free transfer last summer from Paris Saint-Germain, but could leave the club as a make weight to lower the costs on Lacazette. Arsenal have been linked with Rabiot in the past, but failed to agree a deal with the midfielder.

After a long transfer saga, with PSG dropping him from the first team for four months, Rabiot eventually signed a deal with Juventus last summer. In Turin Rabiot has been struggling to hold down a spot on the midfield under Maurizio Sarri and fans of the club have already criticised the midfielder on social media.
