Atletico Madrid coach Simeone plots move for Arsenal striker Lacazette

Atletico Madrid are ready to move for Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette.

Marca says the Frenchman is being lined up for a move to Spain by Diego Simeone.

However, Atletico will only move for Arsenal ace Lacazette if they fail to secure a deal for Paris Saint-Germain's Edinson Cavani.

The Uruguayan will leave PSG this summer after entering the final six months of his contract.

Lacazette is understood to be Simeone's second option.

The Frenchman has six goals in 18 games this season and is out of contract in 2021.

He has shown no interest in signing an extension, and Arsenal could decide to cash in following the emergence of Gabriel Martinelli.
