Sevilla, Roma rival Atletico Madrid for Arsenal striker Lacazette

The race to sign Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette is intensifying.

ESPN says Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and Roma have all declared their interest in Lacazette amid speculation over his future at Arsenal.

Lacazette - who will enter the final year of his Arsenal contract this summer - has been in and out of the first team this season under Mikel Arteta, scoring 11 goals in 25 Premier League appearances.

As a result, Lacazette has been linked with a move away from North London this summer after moving to the Emirates from Ligue 1 club Lyon in 2017.

Atletico Madrid have been long term admirers of Lacazette, but Sevilla and Roma are also interested in signing the 29-year-old.

However, Arsenal are yet to decide on whether to cash in on the striker or extend his stay in North London.
