On Thursday, Real Madrid confirmed Luka Jović has returned to Eintracht Frankfurt on a loan deal.
The Serbian’s move leaves Zinedine Zidane with Karim Benzema and Mariano as the only options up front. Hence, AS look at the potential players who could be ‘bargains’ and also fulfil Los Blancos’ sporting needs.
A few attackers are mentioned and the list includes Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette.
The report mentions that Atlético Madrid are also looking at the Gunners forward. In the short update about the former Lyon man, AS explain Diego Simeone ‘likes’ the 29-year-old.
It’s also claimed the frontman’s relationship with his manager Mikel Arteta is ‘not the best’ and Lacazette is included as part of the ‘cleaning operation’, meaning he is on the list of players who could leave the north London club.
The Frenchman was previously a target for Atlético before he arrived at Arsenal in 2017.
Lacazette will turn 30 years of age in May and his current deal at the Emirates runs down at the end of next season. He has seven goals in 15 league appearances this season for Arsenal.
