Arsenal ready to use Lacazette in offer for Atletico Madrid ace Partey

Major teams are circling Arsenal convinced Alexandre Lacazette will become available this summer.

L'Equipe says Italian duo Juventus and AC Milan are monitoring the Frenchman's situation closely while Atletico Madrid are hoping to get him in exchange for midfielder Thomas Partey.

Arsenal are confident that 27-year-old Ghanaian Partey will sign but Arsenal are facing huge losses with the Arsenal Supporters' Trust estimating that next year's deficit could be £144million.

Partey is understood to be keen to join Mikel Arteta next season and the Arsenal manager has him marked down as a key arrival.

Using Lacazette in the deal could help the Gunners in a financial sense but Arteta said on Sunday that nothing has been decided in terms of the striker's future.
