Atletico Madrid’s quest for an elite striker has not been productive since Diego Costa’s takeoff to Chelsea in 2013/14.
Notwithstanding, regardless of the particularities of this present summer’s exchange window, Atletico Madrid will attempt to accomplish their goal by baiting Alexandre Lacazette to the Spanish capital.
Los Rojiblancos won’t spend large and will most likely be unable to sign genius strikers, for example, Edinson Cavani, Gonzalo Higuain or Luis Suarez.

Although the Arsenal are keen on marking Thomas Partey, Atletico are not ready to head out in different directions with their midfielder.
Yet they would be anxious to offer Thomas Lemar, or Angel Correa or Vitolo as a makeweight.
This arrangement was put on the table back in January, however Gunners turned down the offer.

Atletico had a verbal concurrence with Lacazette back in May 2017 to sign him from Lyon, yet the Court of Mediation for Game (CAS) affirmed their exchange boycott the next month.
The French striker isn’t the main alternative considered by Atletico, who don’t preclude the takeoffs of either Alvaro Morata or Diego Costa.
If an intriguing offer shows up for one of the two advances, the club may trade out to reinvest the cash in another striker.
