The Gunners are ‘willing to let Lacazette go’ in Juventus swap deal. Arsenal may be tempted by a player plus a deal by Juventus.
The 29 years old is in line for a fresh contract but can leave Arsenal for Juventus. If the Seria A champions make a bid for the Frenchman, we can see him leave Emirates. Alexandre Lacazette signed for Arsenal in 2017 and might leave after 3 years at Emirates.
According to The Athletic, Juventus are looking for attacking options and see the 29-year-old as an ideal option. Alexandre Lacazette is not showing his prime form under Mikel Arteta which has put questions over his future.
The Frenchmen is going to talk over a new contract, with his current deal going to expire in 2022. It seems like Arsenal might be happy to sell him and move on if he finds a suitable club.
Lacazette lost his starting place to Nketiah post lockdown. Mikel speaks highly of Frenchmen but gave him less start since the pandemic. It seems Lacazette has fallen down the pecking order under Mikel Arteta.
Arsenal will consider selling Lacazette if its 30 million price tag is met. According to reports in London, the club is also listening to offers of a potential swap deal.
Alexandre Lacazette to Juventus?
Juventus are going to sell some big players and buy new players, under the new management of Andrea Pirlo. Gonzalo Higuain can be the only who’ll leave the Seria A champions this season. The center forward can be a target for Arsenal.
Brazilian international Douglas Costa can be an attractive option for Arteta, though the Gunners have a fair amount of attackers. The 3-time Premier League champions are short on defenders and Cristian Romero can be an ideal option.
Atletico Madrid is also eyeing on a move for Lacazette. Arsenal hopes that he can be make-weight in a transfer for Thomas Partey. Simeone will only consider seal if release clause is paid. At 29, Arsenal can sell Lacazette at a perfect time, if he is not going to feature in their future plans.
The Frenchmen have only scored 12 goals in all the competitions. Lacazette is one of the top earners at the club earning 180k pounds per week. Both Juventus and Arsenal are trying to make a swap deal which looks a better option.
The Italian champions need more fire attacking options, to ease the burden on Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala next season. Alexandre Lacazette has shown potential at the end of the season but scored only 10 goals.
He is not the only player who is ready to leave Arsenal. Hector Bellerin, Sokratis, Matteo Guendouzi Lucas Torreira, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Sead Kolasniac are some players who can Emirates this season.
According to reports, the club also wants to sell Mesut Ozil. But their hopes of selling him appear slim after his agent insisted Ozil will stay at the club. Like Gareth Bale and Sanchez, Ozil wages will be a big problem in selling him.
