Alexandre Lacazette

Alexandre Lacazette might be heading to the exit door of the English Premier League side Arsenal as he is being linked away from the club this summer transfer window.

Although there have not been too many talks about his future with manager Mikel Arteta yet to make any formal claim it is being speculated that he is one of the players that could leave the club this season.

Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid are the leaders among those interested in landing the former Lyon striker and they are believed to be monitoring the situation with him in order to make a move before the end of the summer window.

The French striker did not enjoy enough playing time as a starter in the Mikel Arteta team and that is expected to continue which means he might consider moving ahead with his career.

Spanish outlet, Marca reports that the La Liga club are now willing for a swap talk with the North London club as they are now ready to offer Arsenal target, Thomas Partey or Angel Correa plus cash to land Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsenal had earlier offered Matteo Guendouzi plus cash to Atletico Madrid to have the Ghanaian international but it was turned down with the club insisting on a straight deal.
