Atletico Madrid's priority is Edinson Cavani, but if this deal is not made with PSG, their plan B is Alexandre Lacazette. He has been known to Atleti for some time, as they were very close to signing him in 2017... until the TAS ban.

Miguel Angel Gil Marin is after Edinson Cavani and travelled to Paris to try to strike a deal with the Uruguayan. The deal is obviously difficult and all about money, so Atletico Madrid need to have a plan B.

According to 'Marca', Atletico have Alexandre Lacazette as number two on their list. Atletico will offer Lemar to Arsenal in exchange for the French striker, who they have wanted for a long time.

In fact, the transfer of the striker, then at Olympique Lyon, was closed by Atletico. This was confirmed by the President, Jean Michel Aulas.

"Lacazette already closed a verbal agreement with Atletico Madrid, although at the moment nothing is certain and it is not clear if we will get the deal done, everything depends on TAS," he said.

Fiinally, the two market ban blocked everything. "Everybody knows that Atletico were going to pay 53 million euros plus 12 in add-ons. It was all agreed, but the TAS ban ruined it," the director previously said about the striker.

Lacazette ended up at Arsenal this summer. Now, Atletico Madrid want to sign him again... if and when Cavani's signing fails.
