Alexandre Lacazette

The name of France international Alexandre Lacazette has repeatedly been mentioned in Arsenal’s transfer exit list with various reports linking him to other clubs.

The latest is the report claims that Italian Serie A outfit, Juventus have identified the former Lyon striker as an option for transfer for the replacement of Gonzalo Higuain on a long-term basis.

The Italian Serie A giants have Arkadiusz Milik from Napoli as their major target but the Gunners man, alongside Raul Jimenez will be an option if they fail to land the striker.

Alexandre Lacazette has been previously linked with a move to Spanish La Liga side Atletico Madrid with claims that he would be used as a swap deal for Ghanaian midfielder, Thomas Partey.

Thomas Partey is believed to be the major target for Arteta as reports claim that manager Mikel Arteta is a big fan of the midfielder and would be bringing him to add depth to the middle.

Now that the future of Matteo Guendouzi at the Emirates Stadium is bleak, there are chances that Arsenal will invest in the Atletico Madrid midfielder to help fortify the team.

However, commentators have argued that manager Mikel Arteta will not let go of Alexandre Lacazette in the transfer window, especially after claiming that he wants to have more of him in subsequent games and seasons.
