Alexandre Lacazette

Spanish la Liga outfit, Real Madrid are reportedly ready to give French striker, Alexandre Lacazette a chance at the Bernabeu as his place at Arsenal is no longer guaranteed.

Alexandre Lacazette is already being speculated to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer transfer window with the North London club hoping to cash in from his sale.

Real Madrid are willing to make that happen but are also proposing a swap deal that will enable Arsenal to replace the former Lyon striker immediately.

The Spanish La Liga club have got Karim Benzema to hand over to Arsenal but he would be rejected because he is seen as another Alexandre Lacazette and does not have age on his side, despite his quality.

However, Real Madrid are reported to be considering the option of Serbian striker, Luka Jovic, to move to the opposite direction as he is no longer needed at the Bernabeu and it could be a win-win situation for both clubs to try new things.

Luka Jovic arrived from Germany with a great prospect but failed to live up to expectation, the reason why he is being included in the deal with the hope that his career would be reignited at the Emirates Stadium under manager Mikel Arteta.
