A swap deal involving Arsenal and Juventus still very much on the cards

The Daily Star claims that the swap deal between Arsenal and Juventus that involves Alexandre Lacazette is still on the cards.

Lacazette has emerged as a top transfer target for Juventus in the last few days after it emerged that the Old Ladies want to overhaul their team.

They have just named Andrea Pirlo as their new first-team manager and the former midfielder will be backed to overhaul the team that failed to make it past the Champions League’s round of 16 this season.

Lacazette’s future has been up in the air this year as he began to struggle to make the first team regularly.

The emergence of Eddie Nketiah and his struggle to be effective in Mikel Arteta’s system meant he had to share the striker role with the young Englishman.

The striker has now been linked with a move to Juventus this summer if they cannot land Raul Jimenez.

The report claims that Jimenez is the Old Ladies first-choice striker target this summer, however, they are still interested in signing Lacazette and that Arsenal will let him leave if they can get Federico Bernadeschi in return.
However, the Italian wants to remain at Juve.

I am not sure that Arsenal would go in for a swap deal involving Lacazette simply because the money he would raise would provide more options but who knows.

    There will be no swap between Lacca and Beradichi.

    I have not watched F. B enough but he seems to me the guy who is good at dribbling, passing but his end product on goal is not good. At 26, played 38 games, with International experience, right winger like Pepe.
    I am not sure he is our best choice in Juv. squad.

    The Daily Star, a tabloid to disregard methinks.

  4. Val says:

    if we fail to land another midfielder ( assuming we do sign Partey) then its Rabiot or nothing, we’re stocked with quality on either wing and he is not needed

      Agree with you Val.
      And the comment about Nketiah’s emergence is quite simply OTT. He has not (yet) proven that he can become a go to guy. Running around a lot is all very well, but for a striker it’s goals that count. He has achieved precious little in this key area.

    Dybala I want😍

    Pepe needs competitive and can be an option through the middle

      Competition*

    We absolutely need to keep Laca in the team.
    If we as much as consider a swap for him, then it must be for a player in the class of Aouar

    1. Val says:

      we dont need to keep him, it would be nice to keep him but we dont have to and he will still command a decent fee if we sell him / trade him this summer.
      pretty Sure Aouar plays for Lacazette’s former team Lyon and not Juve who by the looks of it are the only interested team in him plus im sure he would not want to go back there when he could go to Juve and win titles every year

        Honestly, it’s an opportunity to move him on now. His game dropped drastically, maybe due to him always dropping into the midfield for ball recovery.

    It’s not the Old Ladies, it’s the Old Lady🤣.
    While I’m on a roll, we play in the Premier League, not the Premiership, which is in Scotland🤔.
    And it’s Arsenal are, not Arsenal is😳.
    Sorry, pedantic rant over.

    Common Edu, don’t keep us waiting. I wanna be ready before 29th.

  9. Oz akhenisi says:

    If lacazette goes,then it should be for cash only,as I am not really excited by any of the options juve has made available,if laca leaves,then weghorst of Wolfsburg would be a good option as will petagna of Napoli,as they both have good hold up play and are aerial threats as well,we have not had that since giroud.And both would be ready to play second fiddle to auba,plus we still have Eddie who will improve with time and even martinelli.Lacazette is very dispensable,his 10-15 goals is easily replaceable.
