Griezmann spent five years at before signing for Barcelona last summer and the French forward tried to persuade Lacazette in joining him in the Spanish capital in 2017 before the La Liga club were hit with a ban.

Lacazette has struggled to hold down a regular role under Mikel Arteta this season and has been heavily linked with a move to Atletico in recent weeks.

Lacazette also reportedly spoke to about a potential move to the Wanda Metropolitano, but the former Lyon forward took to Twitter to deny such claims:

The post, published by ‘Score Agency’ – who represents Lacazette, reads: ‘Twitter is magic. It’s not nice to lie to the fans of Atletico’.

The France said the reports were ‘not beautiful at all’ and followed up with a few ‘lying face’ emojis to further dismiss the speculation.

Although his future at Arsenal remains in doubt, it seems Lacazette wants to dismiss any speculation that he is actively seeking a move away from the Emirates this summer.

However, with Arsenal keen on a move for ’s Thomas Partey, Lacazette could be included in any potential deal to bring the Ghanaian to the Emirates this summer.
