'Sevilla and Roma join Atletico in the race to sign Alexandre Lacazette'

Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and Roma have all declared their interest in Alexandre Lacazette amid speculation over his future at Arsenal, according to reports.

Lacazette - who will enter the final year of his Arsenal contract this summer - has been in and out of the first team this season under Mikel Arteta, scoring 11 goals in 25 Premier League appearances.

As a result, Lacazette has been linked with a move away from North London this summer after moving to the Emirates from Ligue 1 club Lyon in 2017.

Atletico Madrid have been long term admirers of Lacazette, but ESPN FC have reported that Sevilla and Roma are also interested in signing the 29-year-old.

However, Arsenal are yet to decide on whether to cash in on the striker or extend his stay in North London.

Speaking of the summer transfer window, Arteta said: ‘We are planning everything for the summer, the same with the board, with [chief executive] Vinai [Venkatesham], with [non-executive director] Tim [Lewis], and with the owners.

‘We are very clear on how we want to do it. When you have to change 10 or 12 things in one window [as in January] it’s a lot, and that has some consequences with what has happened in previous months and what is going to happen in the following months.

‘We still have to do quite a lot of things to do, but we will get to the point, hopefully, where it’s just ticking off a few things and the stability is there, because you need that as well to be consistent and be competitive.’

In addition, Arteta previously stated that Lacazette's contract would be dealt with at the end of the season.
