Atletico Madrid sound out Arsenal over Lacazette

Barcelona's move for Antoine Griezmann could have far reaching implications.

The World Cup winner announced he would leave Atletico Madrid this summer, with Barca favourites for his signature.

That leaves Atleti potentially cashed up and in need of a replacement.

According to Le 10 Sport, the Madrid club has made initial contact with Arsenal about the availability of Alexandre Lacazette.

The 27-year-old has scored 19 goals in all competitions so far this season.

Despite Atleti's interest, the Gunners are determined to keep their star man and have planned talks over a new contract.
