In their desperation to acquire one of Arsenal’s top stars, Atletico Madrid are said to be willing to part-exchange two of their own.
According to MARCA, the Rojiblancos remain very keen on bringing Alexandre Lacazette to the Wanda Metropolitano.
So keen in fact, that they’re offering both Vitolo and Thomas Lemar in a bid to get their man.
The latter has been a huge disappointment for the La Liga side, with MARCA noting that he hasn’t scored or assisted in over a year.
To that end, it’s hard to believe that the north Londoners would be interested, though it does often happen that a change of scenery can bring out the best in a player.
Vitolo would, perhaps, be more suited to the hustle and bustle physicality of the Premier League, and would give as good as he received in that regard.
With both Atleti players on good money at present despite not delivering on their side of the bargain, a move out for the pair makes financial sense, given the coronavirus issues.
Whether Mikel Arteta will see any potential in the deal, however, remains to be seen.
Quite frankly AM are taking the piss.If they want Laca they swap with Partey.who they don’t want to lose.But that’s life.Hes not signing a new deal therefore are they going to force him to stay.Think not.
Just swap partey and stop acting like kids.
Laca is a key player at Afc,might not score as many goals as Auba,might not have Pepes skil but he is a top class centre forward who fits Afc like a glove,keep dreaming Athletico.
I could not understand why arsenal and atletico Madrid would not make a swap deal for Lacazette & Partey than deal done? I real real miss to seen all deal done, for Partey , Houssem,( Zaha or Promes)
I am glad you mentioned Promes. He looks like the real deal
Laca and Party swap if not that then pay £60 for Laca
Arsenal need partey only from athleti madrid not vitolo and lemar for laca exchange.
Swap swap swap Atletico swap that ring you want laca we want partey. Let’s the deal be done.
Why would Arsenal want either of those players? They are trying to clear out deadwood, not stack it up. The Gunners signed Willian and have Pepe or Auba on the other flank. Reiss-Nelson and Saka in reserve.
Lemar is a winger or wide forward, so… why would Arsenal take him and his wages on?
In midfield, Arsenal need a holding player of top quality. The player they want is Thomas Partey. It seems silly to outright idiotic to accept anything other than Partey in a swap with Partey’s home club, especially for a proven scorer in his prime like Lacazette. Why would they accept Vitolo, who cannot get on the field for Atletico, when the player they want is playing ahead of him.
Stupid….they are both crap.
Athletico Madrid is wiser than Arsenal FC…eh?
stop playing Simione!
swap or not. time is ticking, you wasting my time.
arsenal strongger DM, they need Partey. if you want Laca let’s swap.
They just want to fool arsenal
I’ll stop Supporting Arsenal if they agree to a stupid deal like that. It makes Zero Sense. If they want Lacazette they should pay his release clause of 55million pounds cash, nothing less.
Or they give us Partey plus 10million pounds and take Lacazette. ???
It’s more better to go for an exchange deal between the Laca & Partey.
Arsenal lack defensive midfielder while ATM lacks scoring machine, so if that is the case why not to adapt a swapping deal for each to end there problem!
We only need partey from them for exchange of laca
hahaha dont make me rough,so u want to get our best Laca for your useless Vitolo n Lemar,forget it Diego we might be insane to accept that nonsense deal,if its not Partley then close your mouth.i close my case
its good idea for that exchange
we want Partey not Lemar !! Lemar is not needed we have wide players !! give us Partey !! and no Partey no hope of getting Lacca !! even with Partey probably no chance of getting Lacca !! but stuff Lemar !!
we need Partey and not useless deadwoods. we are already stuck with some few deadwoods and it is a seious battle to get them to be removed. Deadwoods are relly stubborn. They will always say they want to fight for their places and get high wages for doing nothing. apart from that we want to keep Lacca.
We don’t need lemar
Arsenal don’t need both vitolo & lemar cos we don’t have problems in their positions on the pitch. The only player arsenal wants from ATM is the defensive midfield genus (partey) & no any other player. ATM lets swap partey for laca ,deal or no deal ?
the exchange is good because arsenal are need the defensive midfield but aresenal have a Auba, so if miss the LACA there is problems
Partey for Laca or forget
Laca is a gooner and very happy at the club.so ATM be ready to keep your neglects
