Arsenal fans were giving their seal of approval over reports concerning Alexandre Lacazette.
According to Marca, Atletico Madrid will offer Thomas Lemar in exchange for the forward if Edinson Cavani is ruled out as an option this month. The Spanish club have been chasing the Uruguayan striker, however, Paris Saint Germain are said to be wary over losing him while he still has six months to run on his contract.
One fan was quite desperate for the transfer to happen as he reacted to the reports.

Mikel Arteta’s side were already linked with a move for Lemar prior to the reports over a swap deal with The Independent claiming the north London giants were monitoring his situation. Looking at the two players, Lacazette has performed better across all attacking categories, bar bad controls per game, than the former AS Monaco man.
Some fans were giving their approval over any deal between the two players as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
The problem is people are fans of players above the club. Just because of a friendship between Auba and Laca they won’t admit he’s not that great. Arsenal comes first. Players come and go
