Atletico looking to sign Arsenal striker due to strain relation with Arteta but face Real

Alexandre Lacazette has been a long-term interest for Madrid as they missed out on the deal last year.

Diego Simeone is a strong admirer of Alexandre Lacazette. Atletico Madrid also maintains good diplomatic ties with Gunners in London. Last year’s transfer window shut the door with a couple of unfulfilled dreams of Atletico boss.

As per the reports of AS, Diego Simeone is back in Lacazette prospects as Atletico is keeping good momentum in Spanish La Liga as well as in the European campaign. Also, the politics of North London is quite unstable as Mikel Arteta is not sure about the future of Lacazette.

The Frenchmen has got one more year in his contract in Emirates stadium and he is on the verge of thirty. Even though the striker is astonishing with the ball and the frontline of Gunners is still enjoying the creative deliveries of him.

The last year’s signing of Willian into the attack has added more experience to the frontline and the Brazilian got one more year than Lacazette in his contract. Also, Arteta is addressing the exit of Mesut Ozil and Sokratis these days.

Gunners also said farewell to Sead Kolasinac this month who joined Schalke on loan. Now, they are open for business and Arteta has got a wishlist to work in the January transfer window.

The possible transfer prospects for Diego Simeone

Atletico Madrid and Arsenal had a trade-off last season with Thomas Partey’s switch to London. The deal was quite beneficial for Gunners as the player is one of the important figures in the midfield of Arteta. The Spanish side was in search of the striker in return to that deal. Also, Lucas Torreira’s switch to Madrid on loan was another business between both sides.

The reports from Daily Mail confirmed that Atletico is now into the transfer market with that old dream. They were able to fill the attacking line with another star striker Luiz Suarez from Barcelona last year. The uncertainty in the case of Diego Costa will demand some more senior options in the front.

The January window will be crucial for Arsenal as they will witness some important exits and Arteta needs to fill the gap with correct options. Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard has been a possible option that Arsenal will go for if Lacazette makes an exit.

Transfer engagements of Arsenal

Things are not at all fine with North Londoners. The premier league is still out of control for Mikel Arteta. The squad has found some talented youngsters but the team is yet to find the winning formation. The consistency of captain Aubameyang needs more backing from the squad.

The absence of a creative playmaker is another challenge for Arteta. This would be the no.1 priority for Gunners in the January window. The Lacazette case is still in rumors and the situation in Madrid is under control for Simeone.

Luiz Suarez is gelling up with the formation and Madrid is winning points in the league with a pace. There are talks regarding the anticipation of Real Madrid for Lacazette which is unlikely as per the current situation of Los Blancos.

Alexandre Lacazette bagged 9 goals and an assist from 21 games this season. Atletico can win the deal on a decent budget on the note of the player’s age. If the Frenchmen can make it to Madrid, it will be another strong weapon in the armory of Diego Simeone.
