Juventus are eager in signing the London giants center-forward Alexandre Lacazette and are readied to offer midfielder Adrien Rabiot in exchange, reports claim. The Gunners have a long-standing interest in Adrien Rabiot and tried to secure his services in winter.
The Emirates Stadium outfit contacted Veronique Rabiot, Adrien’s agent and mother, in winter to discuss a loan deal for the remainder of the 2019-20 campaign. But the Bianconeri ultimately concluded against offloading the six-capped France international.
The 25-year-old midfielder thereafter enjoyed a regular starting role under coach Maurizio Sarri missing only one league fixture since December 15. But despite his progress and markedly improved performances in Juventus, France international’s Bianconeri future hangs in the balance.
And that is because the perennial Serie A champions are looking to use him as bait to sign France international in the upcoming summer transfer market. The report insists the two sides are ‘trying to set up’ talks to discuss the possibility of a swap.
The Argentine International Centre-forward Gonzalo Higuain is expected to depart the Old Lady this summer and Lacazette is on Juventus list of possible replacements. Lacazette, who has scored 48 times and contributed 24 assists during his time in the Gunners, has only under two years remaining on his deal.
Coach Mikel Arteta clearly wants to tie the French striker to a new deal at Emirates but insisted in early July that negotiations hadn’t yet started. Blaugrana and Bianconeri have already agreed on a swap deal ahead of the summer transfer market with players Arthur and Miralem Pjanic trading places, with the Juventus also paying £9m.
