Arsenal face a fight to seal the transfer of Alexandre Lacazette this summer as the Lyon striker looks set to push for a move to Atletico Madrid instead, according to latest reports. The France international has made the decision to join a new club as he eyes a fresh challenge in the summer, but seems increasingly likely to snub rumoured interest from the Gunners. Lacazette was a top target for Arsenal last summer as the club saw a bid for him rejected by Lyon, and AS claim he’s now keen on joining Atletico Madrid. The 25-year-old is likely to cost around £50million, and would make an ideal replacement for Antoine Griezmann at the Vicente Calderon, with their star player repeatedly linked with a switch to Manchester United.
