Atletico to offer Arsenal pick of three stars for Lacazette

Atletico Madrid will make a fresh attempt to sign Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette, according to Marca.

The Spanish club have been looking for a world class striker since selling Diego Costa to Chelsea in 2014.

In 2017, they had an agreement to sign Lacazette from Lyon, but a transfer ban led to the deal collapsing.

And while their budget may not allow them to sign Luis Suarez, Gonzalo Higuain or Edinson Cavani, they have a plan to get Lacazette.

Atletico’s sporting director Andrea Berti is willing to offer Arsenal their pick of three players in a swap deal for Lacazette.

The names Marca say will be on offer are Thomas Lemar, Angel Correa and Vitolo.

Thomas Partey is the Atletico player that Arsenal really want, but Los Rojiblancos are currently unwilling to sell him.

Italian champions Juventus also have an interest in 29-year-old Lacazette.

Atletico put a similar offer on the table to Arsenal in January, with the London club rejecting it.

However, circumstances have changed with Arsenal undergoing a number of changes under Mikel Arteta.

Diego Simeone could sell either Diego Costa or Alvaro Morata this summer as he looks to add more goals to his team.
