Atletico Madrid are keen on signing Alexandre Lacazette this summer. The Spanish giants are looking to sign a new striker as Diego Costa is set to leave the club and join Benfica. Atletico have marked Lacazette as their primary target for the summer and according to Mirror Football they are prepared to add three players into the deal.
A report from Marca claims that Atletico are prepared to offer the services of Thomas Lemar, Angel Correa or Vitolo as part of a swap or a player plus cash deal for Lacazette. Lemar has been on Arsenal‘s wishlist for years and the Gunners were even close to signing the left winger in 2017.
At this point it is unclear if Arsenal is ready to offload the French forward this summer and he will definitely not be sold as long as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hasn’t signed a contract extension. The club fears that allowing Lacazette to leave before tying up Aubameyang could leave them behind with no strikers at all.
