Arsenal star Alexandre Lacazette is reportedly eager to join Atletico Madrid this summer.
The La Liga giants are keen to sign a forward and Lacazette is a target with Atletico having been interested before he joined the Gunners.
Lacazette has struggled at times at Arsenal and often been overlooked with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang the main threat at the Emirates.
The future of the Gabonese star remains in doubt though Lacazette could depart regardless of what happens to his team-mates.
Spanish outlet AS claim that a transfer to Atletico may be easier because Lacazette will play a part in finding a solution.

And they add that the 29-year-old wants to join Atletico ‘as soon as possible’, despite his contract at Arsenal running until 2022.
Former Lyon star Lacazette was coy on his future towards the end of last season, when all the talk was over Aubameyang.
He said: “We know that Auba has a lot of discussion with the club but I can’t put my future in someone else.

“Everybody does their own thing. I used to talk with him a lot at the beginning when we came back from lockdown.
“But since we really don’t really talk. I just know he will say something to me before you in the press will know but that is it.
“Me, I’m just playing my games and finishing the season to see how it’s going to be but we didn’t talk about anything.
