Atletico Madrid identify three players to offer in a swap deal for Arsenal star

Posted by

A swap deal only makes sense if both sides actually want a player of similar value from the other team, and there could be an obvious solution in Atletico Madrid’s chase to sign Arsenal star Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsenal have been linked with a move for Atleti midfielder Thomas Partey all summer so a simple exchange of the two players sounds like a fair deal.

Unfortunately for Arsenal Marca have reported on the latest with Atletico’s chase for Lacazette, and it’s just not on the table.

It’s actually suggested that Atleti have identified three players that they would be willing to exchange, but they are Thomas Lemar, Vitolo or Angel Correa.

They even address Arsenal’s reported interest in the Ghanaian midfielder, but they suggest that the Spanish side have no interest in letting him go anywhere.

The three players that are touted for a swap deal would all be decent squad players for Arsenal, but they aren’t as good as Lacazette so you have to think Atleti would need to pay some money to make this happen.

Marca also point out that Atleti tried to sign Lacazette from Lyon back in 2017 and even had a verbal agreement with him, but a transfer ban ruined their chances of getting the deal over the line.

Arsenal can use that long held interest to their advantage and should be able to get a good return for the Frenchman if they decide to let him go, but clearly Thomas Partey won’t be going the other way

  1. Shall they want a swap, let them give us the player we want in exchange to the one they want from us, it is only fair and simple as both players are extra-ordinary.
    We are aware that they have been trying to get rid of Thomas Lemar for a while now so there is no way they will dump him with us and take one of our basest assets.

  2. No Partey, no party.

    Those other swap candidates make no sense at all. Why even bother to pretend?

    Lacazette for Lemar?? Pure spuds logic

  3. They’re trying to take the piss.There are alternatives.Arsenal will make them sweat & so will Partey whose going to be pretty pissed off with AM if they don’t sort it soon & stop messing about.

  4. Nonsense, when arsenal wanted lemar in the pass he rejected them and went to atletico, now that he is dead they want pakage him and drop in emirate and take away one of our best player in laca, to hell with such deal, we are not interested.

  5. I’d suggest it would be a fair deal. So why don’t they do a loan deal swap for a year and see how each player does and then look to make it perm after 12 months if they want.

  6. You can imagine, the ATM doesn’t even have respect for the Gunners, these whole three players are useless the gunners, we only need partey from them…#no partey no laca
