Lacazette Plan B for Atlético Madrid should Cavani deal fail

Marca report that Atlético Madrid will offer Thomas Lemar to Arsenal in a swap deal for Alexandre Lacazette should they fail to land top target Edinson Cavani from PSG.

Cavani has a pre-contract agreement with Atlético and is expected to join Los Colchoneros in the summer. French winger Lemar hasn’t impressed in the Spanish capital since joining for €72m and could be used in exchange for Lacazette if the Cavani deal falls through.

With Diego Costa currently injured, Alvaro Morata is the only fit striker available for Diego Simeone.
