Juventus are reportedly ready to offer Arsenal three of their players in a bid to land Alexander Lacazette.
Arsenal are said to be desperate to get Lacazette off their wage bill and Juventus have emerged as potential suitors.
According to Mirror UK citing The Athletic, Juve are looking to bolster their attack this summer, with Andre Pirlo who was recently appointed new manager looking in the way of Lacazette.
The Frenchman striker is also understood to be on the radar of Atletico Madrid, with the La Liga side's boss Simeone thought to be an admirer of the forward.
And in an apparent move aimed at spicing up their bid, the Old Lady have reportedly lined up three players who they want to offer Arsenal in order for the Gunners to allow Lacazette move to Turin.
The three players who are on the chopping board as part of the player-plus cash deal include Gonzalo Higuain, Douglas Costa and Christian Romero.
Mirror UK, however, contends Higuain and Costa are unlikely to move to the Emirates given the Gunners are well stocked up upfront.
As such, Romero appear as the most likely player to join the north London club as the side is short at the back and Mikel Arteta is keen to strengthen his defence.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Alvaro Morata could be working together with his former teammate Andrea Pirlo who has now become Juventus coach.
The Atletico Madrid striker and the newly appointed Juve boss played together for just one season during the 2014-15 campaign when they made it through to the Champions League finals but lost to Barcelona.
Morata made a good impression after that season and returned to parent club Real Madrid after his successful two-season loan spell in Turin.
And the Italian boss believes the Spaniard will fit into his plans as a traditional striker ahead of their next campaign at the Allianz Stadium, according to SportItalia.
