Alexandre Lacazette Surprise Target for Barcelona
Arsenal star Alexandre Lacazette could be a surprise target for Barcelona at the end of the season.
The Frenchman is currently enjoying an up/down first season in the English top flight.
He has dazzled at time and scored 18 goals in 46 appearances across all competitions this season.
The 27-year-old alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have formed a fearsome strike force which Barcelona have reported to have taken note.
According to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona could swoop in to purchase Lacazette if their interest in Athletico Madrid’s Grieezmann fails to materialise.
The report claims that Lacazette is valued at £60 by Arsenal but the Catalan giants could offer an incentive to Arsenal by offering a swap deal for Samuel Umtiti or Andre Gomes.

Both of these players would be welcome additions to the North London side who have had a mixed season this year and have at times flattered to deceive.
The Gunners could do benefit from more quality in order to progress next season.
