Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Newcastle United And Juventus Lock Horns For Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette is attracting attention from teams all around Europe, with Juventus being the latest to express an interest in acquiring him.

According to Fichajes, Juventus have taken notice of the growing interest in Alexandre Lacazette and is expected to sign a contract with him. Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette is expected to sign a pre-contract with Juventus in January, to complete a free move to the Italian club in the summer.

Given the uncertainty surrounding Alexandre Lacazette’s future at Arsenal, the striker now has an abundance of options available to him, with a slew of teams competing for his services. Mikel Arteta originally preferred to play without the Frenchman during the first few months of the season, but the striker has now established himself as an important part of the Arsenal manager’s plans.

Given Lacazette’s preference for dropping deep and collecting the ball, the Frenchman has been assigned to a hybrid second striker position this season. Even though Arsenal’s performances have improved as a consequence of the formation changes, the Frenchman’s long-term future remains uncertain.

Uncertainty surrounding Lacazette’s future

Arsenal is eager to extend the contract of the French striker, while Arteta may want to bring in a younger attacker in the summer of 2022. Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has made significant changes to his roster, preferring to acquire young players over established stars.

However, after demonstrating his value this season, the choice on whether or not to extend his contract is time-sensitive. Lacazette may begin contract discussions with teams outside of England in January and sign a pre-contract deal at the end of the month. The concept of cashing in on the striker despite interest from Barcelona might be thrown out the window if Arteta believes he is essential to his plans for the remainder of the current season.

Arsenal, on the other hand, may reconsider their position if a significant offer is made. Newcastle United is interested in signing Lacazette and is willing to pay a significant sum for his services. The Frenchman may want to consider his alternatives before joining the Magpies, who are in danger of relegation.

Atletico Madrid has been a long admirer of Alexandre Lacazette

Alternatively, he might choose to join Atletico Madrid, who have long been fans of the striker. The striker, though, may still have several suitors if the Rojiblancos decide against buying him. Both Barcelona and Juventus are allegedly interested in signing the Frenchman.

As a result of their struggles this season, Juventus suffered their sixth defeat in Serie A this past weekend, causing Massimiliano Allegri to seriously consider enhancing his offensive alternatives. As a result of the struggles of Dejan Kulusevski, Federico Bernardeschi, and Alvaro Morata, it may be necessary to bring in an experienced striker with a track record of producing results.

Will Juventus go for him?

Lacazette would almost probably be a fantastic match for Juventus, as his skill level would complement the team’s existing lineup. Juventus might give him rich terms, but the Arsenal striker would still likely be their second-choice target behind Dusan Vlahovic if they were to pursue him in this manner.

As a result of the uncertainty surrounding the futures of Luuk de Jong and Sergio Aguero, Barcelona is also looking for a striker. It is just Memphis Depay who is a trustworthy forward for Xavi.

Lacazette, on the other hand, will have plenty of time and alternatives to consider before deciding where he will go for his next assignment. There is a possibility that he will extend his contract with Arsenal, but his final choice will be based on the offer he receives, especially with Newcastle United rumoured to be on the verge of making an excellent offer to him.
