After learning Antoine Griezmann will be leaving Atletico Madrid this summer, Diego Simeone has started the process of finding a suitable replacement and has Lacazette on his shortlist.
The French striker netted 13 Premier League goals and assisted a further eight whilst playing a crucial role in leading Unai Emery’s side to the Europa League final this season in Baku.
Atletico Madrid are not the only club reportedly keen on the former Lyon forward with Barcelona also linked with a move for him.
Lacazette admitted last week that he was ‘flattered’ by the interest shown in him from Barcelona. However, it remains to be seen if Arsenal will listen to offers for him when the transfer window opens next month.
