Spanish news outlet AS reports that Lacazette is Atletico’s major target for the coming season, and they’re looking to avoid a repeat of the 2017 summer when they had an agreement with the striker which resulted in sanction from FIFA.
Another news medium Cadena SER also reports that Atletico are focusing on the Frenchman ahead of the summer, as they are attracted to a player of his profile.
However, Diego Simeone has revealed that Atletico won’t go looking for a superstar to replace Griezmann.
According to the head coach, they’ll try to invest in a future prospect as they did when signing Griezmann himself.
Meanwhile, the Gunners reacted that it shouldn’t matter whether Atletico wants to sign Lacazette or not. The player has another three years on his contract and he’s been crucial to the side this season.
