Alexandre Lacazette might be allowed to hitch Atletico Madrid with two players heading to Arsenal.
Atletico Madrid have offered Arsenal two stars as part of the LaLiga side’s bid to sign Alexandre Lacazette.
Arsenal striker has two years left on his contract at Emirates Stadium. While he remains happy at the club, Lacazette looks to be down Mikel Arteta’s pecking order.
Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, plus young guns, Eddie Nketiah and Gabriel Martinelli, all play ahead of him.
As such, The Gunners could look to take advantage this summer. While they might likely prefer a cash sale, a report claims Atletico Madrid have offered a stimulating proposal.
According to report, Diego Simeone’s side are ‘extremely keen’ to land Alexandre Lacazette this summer.
Report state Vitolo and Thomas Lemar could head to north London as a part of a swap deal for the Frenchman.
Thomas Lemar is seeking a clean slate after struggling for form since his move to the Wanda Metropolitano in 2018.
Vitolo joined Atletico Madrid from Monaco, the player had previously been the topic of interest from Arsenal.
30-year-old Vitolo, has capped for Spain 12-times, could even be of interest to Arsenal.
He made 35 appearances last season but only scored three goals and two assists.
Vitolo has two years left on his current contract.
