Alexandre Lacazette has been strongly linked with a move to Atletico Madrid over the past few months after enduring a hard season with Arsenal - but his representatives have responded to rumours of an Atleti move on Twitter.

Spanish newspaper AS have stated that Diego Simeone has identified the former Lyon striker as Atleti's summer priority, as they look to add more fire power to the likes of Diego Costa and Alvaro Morata.

Partey's agent recently denied the midfielder was in talks with Arsenal after the Ghanian's father claimed negotiations were taking place.

"Decision making can spoil your career as a footballer because it happened to me during my playing was wrong for me to choose Aston Villa over the French team that came calling so I will use my story to advise him to stay in Spain". It all depends on the offer Atletico are demanding. Even though he has had a poor season, Lacazette was starting to go on form before the Premier League got suspended and he will definitely be hoping that football returns so that he could prove to Arsenal's new boss Mikel Arteta that he is good enough to lead the line.

He has been heavily linked with a move to several European heavyweights including Inter Milan, PSG, Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Arsenal ahead of the forthcoming transfer window. "What they are discussing now is how Atletico will release him".
