Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone reportedly wants to bring Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette to the Spanish capital, despite the loan signing of Moussa Dembele.
Atletico Madrid are reportedly keeping a close eye on developments surrounding the future of Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette.
The former Lyon man has been central to the Gunners' upturn in form recently, scoring four goals in his last four Premier League appearances.
Lacazette has kept Eddie Nketiah and Folarin Balogun out of the team in recent weeks, but having entered the final 18 months of his deal, his future in North London is shrouded in uncertainty.
According to AS, Atletico manager Diego Simeone is an admirer of the France international and could look to sign him despite recently welcoming Moussa Dembele to the club on loan.
The report claims that Lacazette's relationship with Mikel Arteta has soured, and the Gunners could look to ship him out as part of their proposed squad overhaul in the summer.
Lacazette has scored nine goals and set up one more in all competitions during the 2020-21 campaign, and he has totalled 57 strikes in 148 appearances for Arsenal since arriving in 2017.
