Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette Set To Join Atletico Madrid

Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette has reportedly emerged as a summer transfer target for Atletico Madrid.

With less than 12 months remaining on his contract, both the Frenchman and the Gunners are said to be open to a transfer before the end of August.

ESPN report that Atletico are monitoring the situation as Diego Simeone looks for reinforcements in the final third.

Despite winning last season’s La Liga title, Atletico scored 67 goals from 38 matches, 18 less than third-placed Barcelona.

Arsenal meanwhile are allegedly prepared to sell the 30-year-old for £15m.
