Atletico Madrid prepare to propose a swap deal for Arsenal ace

Sun Sport claims that Atletico Madrid is keen to sign Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette and the Spaniards are prepared to offer Arsenal the chance to sign any of three players in exchange for the Frenchman.

Lacazette has had to share the striker role at Arsenal with Eddie Nketiah this year, but he remains a transfer target for Atletico Madrid.

The Spaniards have been his long-term admirers and they were close to signing him in 2017 before they were handed a transfer ban (SkySports).

They need a new striker this summer after their front-men struggled for goals in the last campaign and they consider Lacazette to have the qualities to help them get goals.

The report claims that Diego Simeone is prepared to sacrifice either of wingers Thomas Lemar, Vitolo or forward Angel Correa to land the Frenchman.

Lacazette is Arsenal second-best striker at the moment and Mikel Arteta has no plans to lose any of his important team members.

However, a bid of around 30 million pounds could be enough to tempt the Gunners to cash in as they look for more money to sign the likes of Thomas Partey.

Atletico’s proposal might not be successful especially if they don’t include a significant amount of money in the swap deal.

    include Partey or no deal!

      Yep, include Partey in the deal or tell Ath Madrid they must pay fee to get him. Serve back to them what they have dished out to us regarding Partey.
      Not interesting with the players they offer, so tell them cash or no deal.

        Durand, spot on. Alexander Lacazette plus £10 million (nice round number) for Thomas Partey and Arsenal calls it square.

    This transfer window is driving me insane 😂 I’m fed up with it all now haha…. A clip doing the rounds on social media “Is it Auba or Gabriel at the Emirates, posing for a photoshoot?!” Argh!!!!!
    I think I’ll just turn my focus to Saturday… a date with the car-jackers… I read we’ll be wearing our Walking Dead kit…..

      Sue, the level of incompetence shown by the Arsenal Board at most transfer windows never ceases to amaze. Things don’t appear to be improving, one needs to try and sleep through until the official announcements are made. 🛌

        Too right, Ozzie.. it would save me a lot of hassle! Sigh….

    Gotta know that is Simeone’s opening offer. He knows we have a bucket of wings already. He knows we’ll make the swap of Laca for Partey with negotiable cash considerations.

    Most humorous? Lemar. We almost doled out £90M+ for a wing who could not make it in La Liga. PL would have chewed him up.

    When you are ready Diego…
    We both have one the other really wants.

    1. Stewart Macintosh says:

    2. Mohsan says:

  6. carl says:

    whatever offer Partey for Laca or go do one !! stuff Aletico !!

    1. GunnerMan10 says:

      Agreed!

  7. Paul Le'Dain says:

    As much as I would like to see Laca stay at the club then if Atletico offer us say Tomas Lemar and Tomas Partey then we have to go for the deal.⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆

  8. GunnerMan10 says:

    We should outright refuse anything less than €50million. If they are going to be stubborn a-holes about Partey…. then this is where it will get you.

  9. Bassey says:

    They should give partey in exchange for lacazete that all

  10. Ali barau says:

    We need ex-change with THOMAS LEMAR

  11. Edapal Kennedy says:

    Partey to be swapped with Lacca,,,

  12. k kassiram says:

    laca top dog you want him patey top dog the other way lets do the deal that is fair or lets say good bye call it a day

  13. Stan Adams says:

    Athletico are always a hard club to deal with over transfers so i doubt if any deal between them and Afc will be done but if it is the obvious one for Afc is a swap Laca for Partey.
