Atletico Madrid keen on swap deal for Arsenal striker Lacazette

Atletico Madrid are eager to set up a swap deal for Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette.

The Daily Express says Atletico Madrid have decided Lacazette is their top target should they fail to sign Edinson Cavani and hope Arsenal's interest in Thomas Lemar could make a deal happen.

Arsenal have been quiet in the January transfer window so far despite a number of reports on who they'll target.

Lemar has been a long-term target for the club and a deal was supposedly agreed back in 2017 for the winger to move to the Emirates from Monaco, only for it to fall through at the eleventh hour.

It's reported Atletico could turn their attentions to Lacazette if they fail to agree terms with Cavani from PSG.

And it is claimed Atletico could use Arsenal's interest in Lemar to make the deal happen.
